If you get my Friday newsletter, you most likely read Midge’s question about a simple way to explain the St. Patrick’s Day holiday (if you don’t get my FREE newsletter be sure and subscribe via the sticky note in the upper right corner). Read below to read my thoughts! Molly
I think a simple explanation followed by a fun craft is definitely the way to go! Just use your own words to describe who St. Patrick was and what he did. Simply put he was the man who brought Christianity to Ireland. Ireland chose the Shamrock as their national flower because St. Patrick used it to describe the Holy Trinity when explaining the foundation of Christianity to the people. St. Patrick’s Day has become associated with anything Irish: the colors green and gold, luck and shamrocks. As far as leprechauns, rainbows and a pot of gold. . . well, you’ll have to decide how you want to approach that.
Love ya, Molly
