St. Patrick's Day

Take a look at Reuzeit Emporium’s selection of antique and vintage St. Patrick’s Day postcards. St Patrick’s Day was first celebrated in 1737 in Boston, Massachusetts to mark the date when Saint Patrick died in 460 AD.  St Patrick was born in Wales and at the age of 16 he was kidnapped by a band of pirates and sold into slavery in Ireland. There he became a Christian and later a priest and he is given credit for converting many people to Christianity.  His followers started wearing shamrocks on his feast day and this custom turned into the wearing of the green. Now St Patrick’s Day has become a secular holiday and on this day everybody is Irish!
