Jenny is Googling
Jenny is always on Google searching for one thing or another. We all know what the Internet and Google are all about. You open one link and then you click on another link and then another. Then you can’t remember where the first link was because you’ve clicked on so many links. This is what happens to Jenny and she ends up on a website that has information about St. Patrick’s Day. She never heard of that holiday before. She begins to read more about this holiday and finds the history to be very interesting.
“St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March 17th, every year to celebrate Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. St. Patrick’s Day is the celebration of Saint Patrick’s death that was believed to be on March 17th, 461. Around the age of 16, Saint Patrick was kidnapped by raiders and enslaved on Gaelic Island. Saint Patrick eventually returned to Ireland and is credited with bringing Christianity to the once pagan Ireland. This religious holiday is observed by the Catholic church, Anglican Church, Eastern Orthodox Church, and Lutheran Church.” You can read more history here.
