Your Compass MONTHLY
Spring is in the air. I know, I know ... the groundhog saw his shadow, which supposedly means we’re in for six more weeks of winter. Well, as I write this, Savannah has had temperatures over 75 degrees for the last three days. Don’t even get me started on the pollen. I used to drive a black car, but it’s been solid green for the past week. Speaking of green, St. Patrick’s Day is rolling up soon. There is always a huge celebration in Savannah. If you go, be careful. March is the month where we start the spring season. March is when we start to see beautiful weather — cool, but not frigidly cold. This past winter has been rougher than usual — I still can’t believe we had snow! I think I claimed last year that we are losing our seasons. Well, I must eat my words after this winter. It is a time to get outside and enjoy the nice weather. An exciting time, a fun time. FROM THE DESK OF Ty Wilson
St. Patrick’s Day is the best day of the year to let your Irish colors fly. Traditional celebrations include dressing in green, attending parades, and eating green food. However, these weren’t always the holiday traditions. It might come as a surprise, but the patron saint of Ireland wasn’t even born Irish! W ho W as S t . P atrick ? Not much is known about the man, and even his place of birth is subject to dispute among experts. We do know that he was born in a village called Bannavem Taberniae, which could have been somewhere in England, Scotland, or Wales. When he was 16 years old, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and brought to Ireland for the first time. He was held prisoner for the next six years, and he worked as a shepherd until he was finally able to escape. After such a rough introduction to the Emerald Isle, it might be a little hard to understand how Patrick became the patron saint of Ireland. Alone and scared in a foreign country, he turned to his faith for comfort. While his family was indeed Christian, Patrick had shown little to no interest in the practice up until that point. After being held captive for so long, he felt compelled by God to leave Ireland, so that’s what he did. THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOWABOUT ST. PATRICK’S DAY
