lotsofpumpkins Posted March 17, 2012 Share Posted March 17, 2012 (edited) We are protestant, and my dc are all wearing green today. I told them that St. Patrick was kidnapped and made a slave in Ireland, and after he returned home he decided (after several years) to go back to Ireland as a missionary. Does it really matter that he was Catholic? He was telling people about Christ and trying to eliminate paganism. But then again, Protestants are "supposed" to wear orange on St. Patrick's Day. That feels like taking sides though. Just wondering what other Protestants are doing today. I was reading some old threads about what Catholics/Irish do on St. Patrick's Day, and a lot of the traditions sound like fun! I grew up simply wearing green, and then in high school I was told that I should actually be wearing orange. [i was not told the reason for wearing orange back in high school, and today I've learned that it's about Irish politics. So, even though I am protestant, I am NOT wearing orange today. We are wearing green to celebrate the life of a man who followed God's call and told countless people about Him. Just wanted to update this in case someone doesn't read all the replies!] Edited March 17, 2012 by lotsofpumpkins 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
