We all have heard about St. Patrick’s Day and know that its roots are in Ireland, yet it always fascinates us. But what is it all about? Let us not limit our knowledge to Irish themed slots and know more about this celebrated day!
A little about St. Patrick and his legacy..
St. Patrick is an important figure in the history of Irish Catholic, but only few know that he wasn’t really an Irish. St. Patrick actually has his origins in the Britain! After a few ups and downs, he became a priest and spent his life converting the Irish into Christians. Today, St. Patrick’s Day is a feast day in Ireland. It is a celebrated festival, more of a feast day. Traditionally, on this day, people come together in mass to celebrate and ponder upon St. Patrick’s legacy.
You also must have noticed in Irish themed slots that a lot of green colour is used. The leprechauns are dressed in green, the theme is basically everything green! Even the flag of Ireland is green! So, why is green that important? This can be traced back to the 17th Century, when the green harp flag was used for the first time. Some even say that since St. Patrick used a lot of shamrocks, the green colour was brought in from there. Some theories also suggest that since this day comes during spring, the green colour has been associated. Hence, on St. Patrick’s it became a tradition to be dressed in green or you will be pinched for not doing so!
