What is St Patricks Day all about?

St. Patrick’s Day, a feast day established in 1631 by the Church, has become an integral part of global culture, celebrating Irish heritage and the patron saint of Ireland. There are often leprechauns and a pot of gold involved now though. 😂

This year, why not add a little extra fun to your festivities with these delightful St. Patrick’s Day placemats, each with new puzzles on for the kids to get stuck in to?

A brief history of St. Patrick’s Day

Before we delve into the exciting creative ideas on the placemats and improve those fine motor skills, let’s take a quick look at the fascinating history behind St. Patrick’s Day. The March 17th celebration began to honor St. Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland. Despite being born in Roman Britain, he was kidnapped into slavery and brought to Ireland. After escaping to a monastery in Gaul, he returned to Ireland to convert the Irish to Christianity.

Interestingly, the tradition of donning green on St. Patrick’s Day started in the 18th century when the shamrock, a national symbol of Ireland, was introduced to the festivities. Today, the holiday has evolved into a grand celebration of Irish culture, complete with parades, special foods, music, dancing, and a sea of green.
