Happy St. Patrick’s Day Captions

These St. Patrick’s Day captions are perfect for March 17 or any day you’re feeling a wee bit Irish.

The holiday of St. Patrick’s Day recognizes the famous missionary who brought Christianity to Ireland. The Patron saint of Ireland was born in England. When he was 16 years old, he was taken as an enslaved worker to the Emerald Isle by Irish pirates.

He is noted for using the shamrock plant to illustrate the concept of the Holy Trinity. Some credit him with banishing snakes from Ireland, but others note that snakes were never on the island.

The feast of St. Patrick’s Day is not only celebrated in Ireland, the United States, and other countries with parades, gatherings, and special events.

At such events and elsewhere, folks take photographs. Celebrate these photo memories in style by finding just the right words! Please read on.
