Día de San Patricio

 El día de San Patricio es una fecha mágica: un día para comenzar a transformar los sueños del invierno en la magia de la primavera.

Existen lindos motivos para que plasmemos en nuestros quilts, como el trébol, el sombrero, el duende, el arcoíris, etc, ah y eso sí, ¡todo en verde! Compartan sus ideas!!!

Un poco de historia y datos curiosos:

San Patricio nació en Bennhaven Taberniae (pueblo del antiguo territorio escocés y que ya no existe) en el año 385 d.C. y moriría en Saúl, región de Strangford Lough, en Irlanda del Norte en el año 461 d.C. En este último había construido su primera iglesia

Actualmente el evento más importante de esta celebración es el Festival de San Patricio que se realiza en Irlanda. Su primera versión fue hecha en 1931 en el territorio irlandés. A nivel internacional, el primer desfile tomó lugar en 1996 realizándose simultáneamente en Inglaterra y Estados Unidos, los países con mayor presencia de inmigrantes irlandeses.

En Iberoamérica se conmemora este día en todos los países con presencia de una comunidad con ascendencia irlandesa. Argentina, México y España son los países en los que cobra mayor fuerza. Esto debido a la estrecha relación política entre Irlanda y estos países.

Las tradiciones irlandesas asociadas al trébol de tres hojas y a vestirse de verde, se deben también a San Patricio. Esto debido a que él empleaba un trébol para explicar el origen de la Santísima Trinidad. Según la religión católica esta es formada por tres entidades: El Padre, el Hijo y el Espíritu Santo.

Asistir al Desfile de San Patricio que toma lugar en Dublín en Irlanda. Esta celebración comienza el 17 de marzo y se extiende durante 6 días. Durante el desfile se realizan diferentes actividades religiosas y culturales que destacan las tradiciones irlandesas.

Es tradición vestirse de verde y usar un sombrero del mismo color. En el sombrero se debe usar un trébol de tres hojas, símbolo asociado a San Patricio y al folklor irlandés.

Es costumbre reunirse con amigos y familiares en los “Pubs”, bares con tradición irlandesa, para disfrutar de la cerveza y la carne asada. Comidas y bebidas tradicionales de Irlanda.

En varias ciudades del mundo se realizan actividades conmemorativas a este día. Por ejemplo, en New York, Londres, Manchester y otras ciudades de Norteamérica y Gran Bretaña, se llevan a cabo versiones del Desfile de San Patricio. A diferencia del desfile de Irlanda, estos solo se hacen durante el 17 de marzo.

En 2016 se llevó a cabo el primer desfile organizado en la Ciudad de México: el San Patricio Fest parade y festival de música, donde más de dos mil personas acompañaron a grupos de música irlandesa mexicanos, academias de irish dance, embajadadora de Irlanda y delegaciones diplomáticas en lo que fue una verdadera fiesta irlandesa.

Este año 2017 se realiza el mismo desfile y culminará con una serie de presentaciones de música y baile irlandeses.

Ver la película “San Patricio, la leyenda irlandesa” (2000). Dirigida por Robert Hughes, esta película representa la vida y obra de San Patricio desde su juventud hasta sus años finales.

Y ¡felicidades a todas las Patricias y Patricios!
