St Patrick was born in Scotland in 385 A.D. Free powerpoints at http://www.worldofteaching.com
He became a priest
He went to Ireland to teach people about God.
Some say he drove all the snakes out of Ireland.
Others say he used shamrocks to teach about the Trinity
He died March 17 in 461 A.D.
Leprechauns are unfriendly and possess a pot of gold.
If you find a Leprechaun, you can trick him into showing you his gold.
But if you don’t watch the leprechaun very carefully, he and the gold will disappear!
Today Americans march in parades…
Dance the Irish Jig…
Dye rivers green…
And of course, many people drink lots of beer!
People wear green in memory of Ireland
Some also wear Clover/Shamrocks.
If you find a four-leaf clover you will have good luck.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
Лимерики Эдварда Лира There was a young lady whose nose, Was so long that it reached to her toes; So she hired an Old Lady, whose conduct was steady, To carry that wonderful nose. Молодая особа, чей нос Рос, пока до земли не дорос, За пятак и полушку Нанимала старушку, Чтоб носить свой немыслимый нос.
