Oftentimes St. Patrick’s Day is symbolized by a shamrock, a symbol of good luck. Where did this originate…?
St. Patrick’s Day wasn’t always so commercialized. Its roots are in a 5th century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop of Ireland, Patrick, who spent his days converting pagans to Christians. Patrick used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagans.
The Irish have considered shamrocks as good-luck symbols since earliest times, and today people of many other nationalities also believe they bring good luck. What is luck? Luck is the success or failure apparently brought on by chance, rather than through one’s own actions. It has regularly been said that golf is a game of luck. Is it? This is a great article on that!
