St. Patricks green

Today it is St. Patricks day. The Irish national day. According to some Irish writings, St. Patrick died on March 17, 461 A.D. The anniversary of his death is celebrated as St. Patrick's Day. It's interesting to note that the shamrock clover flowers around that time of year. Saint Patrick had an adventurous life. He was captured by pirates at the age of 16. The Irish pirates brought him to Ireland to tend the flocks of a chieftain in Ulster. Six years of slavery made him a devoted Christian. He brought Christianity to Ireland and taught there for 29 years. He used the shamrock, a 3 leaf clover, (Ireland's national flower) to explain the Blessed Trinity. One of the most popular legends was how he charmed all the snakes of Ireland down to the seashore to be drowned by the water.

On the grid we see in this time many green clothings. Today i will show some St. Patrick green styled outfits. Tomorrow for the Luna Jubilee color challenge blog it will be St. Patricks blue. Never heard of it .. but it exists.
