History of St. Patrick’s Day

Of all the holidays, St. Patrick’s Day is one of the most celebrated around the globe. The Irish heritage and culture flow through communities throughout the world every March. Without St. Patrick, however, there wouldn’t be a day to celebrate. Take a look at the history of St. Patrick’s Day and learn how the holiday came to be!

St. Patrick is widely known as the patron saint of Ireland. Born around the year 400 to a British Army Officer, Patrick’s name was likely Maewyn Succat or Patricius. Pirates kidnapped him as a child and sold him into slavery. He spent six years in prison in Ireland before receiving a message from God that told him to escape.

After doing so, he ventured to France where he spent 12 years at a monastery. He returned to Ireland as a bishop and with the pope’s blessing. There, he refused gifts, though he gave some himself, converted the population to Christianity, set up schools, created the basis for the church in Ireland, and much more.

Some of his most important converts were royal family members and, despite being arrested on multiple occasions, he still went above and beyond to do what was best for the Irish community at large.

We here at Red Wing Chevrolet are pumped to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this coming March!

In the spirit of teamwork taught by youth sports, Red Wing Chevrolet Buick Cadillac is joining Red Wing Hockey Association to provide players and coaches with hockey equipment kits that include hockey pucks, t-shirts, and knit caps, a sponsorship check and an opportunity for community members to enter the free Ultimate Pro Hockey Experience sweepstakes.

Red Wing Chevrolet Buick Cadillac and other Minneapolis-St Paul-area Chevrolet dealerships are donating these items to participating leagues in the area.

Each of the sponsored leagues across the region will receive 500 free sweepstakes entry forms to distribute within the community. At the end of the entry period, one winner from Minneapolis-St Paul will win the Ultimate Hockey Experience in addition to other prizes.
