In this article you'll discover some great St. Patrick's Day crafts.

St. Patrick lived almost two thousand years ago in Ireland. He was a missionary who spread the gospel of Christianity to the country, and he is the patron saint of Ireland. St. Patrick's Day is observed in honor of his life.

There are many legends associated with St. Patrick. One of them holds that he stood on a hill and used his staff to drive the snakes out of Ireland. (To this day, there are no snakes in Ireland.) Another is that he used the shamrock (a three-leaf clover) to explain the Trinity to his new converts.
