The World Celebrates Green Day!...

All around New Zealand, there are a lot of events happening because of Saint Patrick's Day! Each year in New Zealand Saint Patricks Day is celebrated on the 17th of March.

The first celebration of Saint Patrick's day was in the United States specifically Boston in 1737. The largest celebration to celebrate Saint Patrick's day parade is in New York, I don't know why it is the largest but who knows why?

Patrick was born in Britan in the year 387. Patrick's real name was actually Maewlyn Succat. The name St Partick was given to him later in his life by a woman named Pope Celestine. Later on at the age of sixteen, he was kidnapped by pirates and was sold into slavery in Ireland. Saint worked as a shepherd and started turn into a different religion into a Devout Christian. After six years when he was 21, he escaped and flew back to Britain.

St Patrick sadly died at Saul, Downpatrick, Ireland, then on March 17, he was believed to be buried in Downpatrick, County Down!

That is why we celebrate Saint Patrick's Day!
