My name

March 17, 2011

My name on a woven bookmark, made by Mileny from Costa Rica. Thank you! :

It is Saint Patrick’s day today. Saint Patrick was a Christian missionary who is the most generally recognized patron saint of Ireland. Saint Patrick’s Day is observed on March 17, the date of Patrick’s death.

Legend credits St. Patrick with teaching the Irish about the concept of the Holy Trinity by showing people the shamrock, a three-leaved clover, using it to highlight the Christian belief of  three divine persons in the one God. For this reason, shamrocks have definitely become a central symbol for St Patrick’s Day.
