Here is a picture of St Patrick’s Day Irish hockey sports shirt. The green represents the Catholics, orange represents the Protestants, white represents the peace between the groups. Orange is the color of the Protestants, and Protestants don’t celebrate the saints. Therefore they don’t celebrate St. Patrick’s day. Wearing orange on St. Patrick’s day is like a big to the Irish Catholics who celebrate it. In Boston many Italians choose to wear orange on St Pat’s as a kind of protest, including my late Italian best friend who loved to hate everything Irish. So Americans celebrate St. Patrick’s day by wearing green clothes, getting drunk and getting into fights.
The following is adapted from several sources, which may give you a better picture of St Patrick’s Day Irish hockey sports shirt, and which is better than my writing the whole thing from scratch. St. Patrick was a Christian missionary to Pagan Ireland. He had been kidnapped from England and enslaved, then escaping. Back at home, he later received what he believed to be a call from God to baptize the Irish. He was educated to become a priest, returned, and helped initiate a culture which combined Celtic folkways with the belief in Christ. This culture helped to convert Europe.
