Loved reading this facts! I hope you had a great St. Patricks Day!!
These are some great facts about the origin of St. Patty’s day. I will have to show this to my kids so that they are more informed.
What a great list of fun facts! I didn’t know most of them!!
Debbie Denny says
Cool facts. There were a few I did not know.
1737! That’s a long time ago. Hurrah for tradition that lasts. 🙂
Amanda Love says
I had no idea about a lot of them. I personally don’t celebrate the day but we do dress in green. 🙂
Wendy @ ABCs and Garden Peas says
Wow! So many things on that list that I didn’t know! I guess I’m pretty out of touch with the origins of St. Patrick’s Day. I think it’s really important to teach kids where holidays come from, so I’ll be saving these tips for lessons later!
Elizabeth Towns says
I didn’t know St. Patrick was never canonized! I wonder if that can be done posthumously. I was unaware of a few of these facts – how neat to have them all together like this! Cool beans.
AJ @ NutriFitMama says
I didn’t know most of those facts lol! And my kids love fun little projects, thanks for sharing these!
Liz Mays says
I can’t believe I never learned these things about St. Patrick growing up. The history is so much different than how I thought!
I didn’t know many of these facts. Like that St. Patrick used the clover to demonstrate the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. That’s too cool!
We have also used the egg analogy before to describe the trinity as well… the shell, the egg white and the egg yolk.
I personally like the clover one so much better!
These were fun to read. I found out things i didn’t know.

This is a great infographic! Super cute
This is a very informative post. All this time I thought St. Patricks was a Drinking Holiday. I had no idea it was deeply rooted in Christianity
LOL!! That won’t stop me from having some green beer though :0)
Thanks for sharing. I don’t think many people, myself included know all of these things!
maria @ closetohome says
I will have to share this with my husband who is the Irish one in our family. guess the kids are 1/2 now too.
Jennifer at Making Our Life Matter says
What a cute resource! I am sharing this with my SIL, who is a teacher. I know she will find it very helpful.
