199--California: St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, was born about 385 AD. Born in Wales, his real name was Maewyn. As a child, Maewyn considered himself pagan and at 16, he was sold into slavery. After 6 years of slavery (Maewyn found God during these terrible years) he escaped, changed his name to Patrick, and began studying at a monastery.

After a few years Patrick became a bishop and returned to Ireland to convert the Celtic Druids. For 30 years he established missions all over Ireland. The reason the shamrock is a symbol of St. Patrick’s Day is that Patrick used the 3-leaf clover to explain the Holy Trinity.

St. Patrick died on March 17, 461 AD. That’s why my friends and I went to a thrift store, bought all the green clothes we could find, and were in a parade with thousands of other green folks—some Irish and some Irish-for-a-day.
