St. Patrick was born around 387 C.E. in Scotland, and turned to God. The patron saint of Ireland brought Christianity to Ireland. St. Patrick's Day is best known for parades, beer, and turning rivers green, but the holiday has a long history. St. Patrick’s Festival was established by the Government of Ireland in November 1995. The shamrock is associated with St. Patrick, as he reportedly used the three-leafed plant as a way of explaining the Trinity- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
