Why do we Celebrate St. Patrick's Day?

St. Patrick's Day is a day that I have always enjoyed; wearing green, pinching those who forget, and an excuse to hit my favorite Irish pubs for some delicious Guinness! As I saw the day coming up on my calendar this year, I starting to think about my plans and where to celebrate. Before long, I was thinking even more deeply about the day, and became curious as to why we celebrate it in the first place and why it has become such a big holiday in the United States. Strangely enough, it was not at all what I previously thought, and I bet that you will be shocked too. Take a look to learn the brief history of Saint Patrick, the myths and facts around him, and the evolution of St. Patrick's Day!
