Saint Who's Day?

St. Patrick's DayHave you wondered about the origins of St. Valentine’s Day or St. Patrick’s Day? The true history of St. Valentine’s Day is much of a mystery. There are several saints that could have been associated with the holiday but February has long been regarded as a month of romance by ancient cultures like the Roman Empire.  St. Patrick is actually the patron saint of Ireland and the anniversary of his death is observed every year on March 17. It is because of his Irish background that St. Patrick’s Day, or St. Paddy’s Day, is associated with leprechauns, clovers and the color green. For books about St. Patrick’s Day please click here.
