Saint Patrick’s Day

  Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. He brought Christianity to Ireland but the most famous story about Saint Patrick is that he drove the snakes out of Ireland.
  The national emblem of Ireland is the Shamrock  because Patrick used the three-leaved shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity. On St.Patrick’s Day people wear shamrocks, drink Guinness (traditional drink in Ireland) and have parades in the big cities.  It is celebrated on 17 March.

Above all others is the pig.
Pigs are noble. Pigs are clever,
Pigs are courteous. However,
Now and then, to break this rule,
One meets a pig who is a fool.” /Roald Dahl/

(Fireworks display above the Houses of Parliament in London, UK)

On 5 November every year, children in Britain celebrate Bonfire Night (Guy Fawkes’ Night). They light bonfires  and enjoy fireworks displays. On top of the fire is a guy (a homemade model of a man, like a scarecrow). They do these things because they’re remembering when the King of England, James l, and the Houses of Parliament were nearly blown up with gunpowder.
 
“Remember, remember,
the fifth of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
We see no reason why
Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!”
 
Dear Young Reader,
Your task is to make a Guy Fawkes craft by printing and colouring the following template: Guy Fawkes
Moreover, if you learn the rhyme Remember, remember… by heart (fejből), you can get a 5*.
 
Have fun! 🙂
