St. Patrick’s Day means spring gardening season is close at hand
Add Sutton Family Skin Care’s Liquid Skin Salve for Gardeners to your list
Groundhog Phil may have been a little off on his prediction, but spring is finally coming and Sutton Family Skin Care is ready to keep your hands soft and smooth. Everything is going to turn green again and so are we – on St. Patrick’s Day. But why green? And what is St. Patrick’s Day is all about?
Every year on March 17, the Irish and Irish-at-heart across the globe observe St. Patrick’s Day. The man who would become St. Patrick was born around the fifth century in Britain when that part of the world was part of the Roman Empire.
When Patrick was 16 years old, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and enslaved for the next 10 years. He managed to escape, converted to Christianity, and became a priest in Europe. Later, he returned to Ireland and served as a missionary, converting the Irish from the Celtic pagan beliefs to Christianity until his death on March 17, 461.
The legends of St. Patrick
Legend has it that St. Patrick drove the snakes from Ireland. While that makes for a good story, snakes likely were used as a symbol of St. Patrick’s cleansing Ireland from paganism. Ireland did not have snakes, to begin with, since these creatures had not made it to the island when an icy bridge existed to the mainland.
Another story has St. Patrick using shamrock leaves to explain the Holy Trinity. As a result, the Irish began wearing shamrocks in the 18th century on St. Patrick’s feast day of March 17 to signify their Irish Christianity. That tradition later expanded to include wearing green clothing.
The United States originated the tradition of celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with a parade. Thousands of Irish immigrants arrived in America during the great potato famine of the 1840s, many of whom came through Ellis Island and settled in New York City. The first St. Patrick’s Day parade was held in New York in 1762.
Today, we also celebrate the coming of spring on St. Patrick’s Day with gorgeous flower and garden shows. In anticipation of the new gardening season, Sutton Family Skin Care is offering our specialty product, Liquid Skin Salve for Gardeners. We created this product to provide relief for your dry hands at the end of a day of dirt therapy.
Enjoy spring and happy gardening!
