I only have a little bit of Irish blood in my genes, so growing up my family rarely celebrated St. Patrick’s Day. It is hard to truly celebrate a holiday when you are unsure of its origins. A few years ago, however, I saw a movie that changed my perspective and helped me appreciate this holiday for what it is. The movie I watched was, St. Patrick: The Irish Legend. After seeing this film and doing a home school research project with my girls, I developed a greater appreciation for St. Patrick and had a reason to celebrate his life.
Join me over at The Are of Domesticity to learn more about the amazing life of St. Patrick. and the reasons behind some of popular symbols associated with the holiday.
In the meantime enjoy the holiday.
