The Luck Of the Irish! St. Patrick's Day Silver Bullion Collection Available

“For the whole world is Irish on the seventeenth o' March!” - Thomas Augustine Daly

Things get a whole lot greener in the month of March. The beginning of Spring is officially three-quarters of the way through the month and if you are lucky enough, the weather will begin to show signs of it. But if you are from the Midwest like us, it’s a very hit or miss situation when it comes to Mother Nature.

A few days before the start of Spring though is a day that has increased the number of party beads and noisemakers needed, transformed beer from golden brown to green, and has turned the phrase “don’t pinch me” into a warning for those who stalk folks who dare not to wear the color green. That day is on the 17th of March every year and it is called St. Patrick’s Day.

History Behind St. Patrick’s Day

Saint Patrick, a member of fifth-century society, is the patron saint and national apostle of Ireland. At the age of 16, he was kidnapped and brought to Ireland as a slave from his birthplace of Roman Britain. After later escaping, he eventually found his way back to Ireland and was recognized as bringing Christianity to its people. Following his death, which was believed to be on March 17, 461, mythologies of his life became more and more ingrained in the culture of Ireland even centuries after.

The most well-known of supposed mythology was that of the legend of his explanation of the Holy Trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) as he was said to have used the three leaves of a native Irish clover called the shamrock. People have been observing the Roman Catholic feast day of St. Patrick on March 17 now since about the ninth or 10th century. The very first parade took place in 1762 to celebrate the holiday but to much surprise, it was not in Ireland. In the United States, Irish soldiers that were serving in the English military marched through New York City with their native music. The parade itself was said to have helped the soldiers reconnect with their Irish roots alongside fellow Irishman in the army. Celebrations since then have grown exponentially during the holiday and it is now celebrated around the world.
