It’s almost March 17, and if you’re Irish you already know what day I’m talking about, that’s right good ol’ St Patrick's Day. Today I will be teaching you "how to draw a leprechaun", step by step. This is a day where the Irish celebrate in honor of St. Patrick the patron saint of Ireland. He was a pagan who was sold into slavery by Irish marauders who raided his village. While being captive, his faith grew in God and eventually became closer to him. Escaping from slavery after six years, he traveled to Gaul and gave up twelve years to study in the monastery under St. Germain the bishop of Auxerre. He later believed that his mission in life was to convert pagans to Christianity, and that is exactly what he set out to do. He returned back to Ireland to start converting native pagans, but St. Palladius was appointed to carry out the mission by his superiors. Fortunately, two years later Palladius was transferred to Scotland, and Patrick was then appointed second bishop to Ireland. Over the years Patrick traveled all over Ireland and established monasteries across the country as well as schools and churches. It wasn’t till 1737 that St. Patrick’s Day became accustom to America, this was the first year that St. Patrick’s Day was celebrated in the streets of Boston Massachusetts. Today, people still celebrate the Irish holiday by with parades, dressing up in green, and drinking green beer.
