Saint Patrick's Day  tends to one of those fun holidays. However, the story of Patrick's journey is quite different. He was kidnapped and worked as a slave for years until he escaped a few years later.  During his enslavement, Patrick formed a relationship with God. Once freed, Patrick became a priest and is said to have used the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity. Saint Patrick died on March 17th, making this more of a memorial day. Interesting right!!!
