St. Patrick's Day - The story behind Patrick, the man, the Saint!

Sadly, the traditional St. Patrick’s Day Parade held over the last 250 years on March 17th in New York City has been postponed. More than likely, other events celebrating this day in history will fall suit in the days to come. Many who celebrate this annual Holiday will surely be disappointed. We can still enjoy why there is a St. Patrick's Day, and the history of St. Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland.

Wearing of the Green” has symbolized the celebration of, Maewyn Succat, who took on the name of Patrick when becoming a priest, the patron saint and apostle of Ireland. “Patrick” as he became known, was born in Britain of a Roman family in the late 4th Century, his father a deacon, his birth believed to be around 375AD. After being kidnaped by Irish raiders at the age of 16 and taken to Ireland as a slave, he finally managed to escape after 6 years of captivity as a herdsman turning to his faith to survive. Upon his escape and trying to return to Britain, he nearly starved and then suffered another captivity before being reunited with his family.

After receiving a letter called “The Voice of the Irish”, he felt the need to go back to Ireland around the year 432 to convert the Irish people to Christianity. Confident in the Lord, By the time of his death in 461 he had created churches, schools and monasteries all over Ireland baptizing and converting many into Christianity.

During the 7th century, myths and legends began to abound about “St. Patrick” such as explaining the Holy Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) by using the 3 leaves of the “shamrock”, a native green Irish clover.  Legend has it that he drove the snakes out of Ireland by driving them over a cliff and into the sea. He wrote that he had raised people from the dead, and that he prayed for food for hungry sailors traveling through a barren area and that a herd of swine magically appeared preventing starvation.

Years of legend and tales have spawned celebrations around the world on the day of his death, said to be March 17th. From New York City to Chicago and on to Boston parades have become a tradition to celebrate St. Patrick. The first to observe the “day of the feast” took place in Ireland around the 9th or 10th Century as a Roman Catholic “feast” day.

Parades on St. Patrick’s Day began right here in the United States in New York City. The first parade to celebrate this day took place in 1762, by Irish soldiers in the English military who marched through the City streets. Playing music with their bagpipes, parading through the cobblestone streets helped them to stay true to their roots and connect with their fellow Irishmen.

Stay tuned for more to come…. On how the Irish immigrants came to America, their struggles and their accomplishments and how the traditional celebration every year has changed their lives.

歷史
六七千年前的先民就開始釣魚。周文王曾和兒子們在靈沼釣魚取樂。戰國時范蠡也愛釣魚,常把所釣之魚供給越王勾踐食用。 二十世紀八十年代,中國大陸的各級釣魚協會成立,釣魚地點也從自然水域向養殖水域過度,所釣之魚則從粗養向細養過度。人數增多、水體污染及濫捕濫撈導致釣魚難度上升。釣魚協會開始與漁民和農民簽訂文件,使更多釣者能夠在養殖水域釣魚,達到了雙贏的目的。 二十世紀九十年代初,來自台灣的懸釣法走紅大陸,各地開始建造標準釣池。 二十世紀末,發達國家的釣者提倡回顧自然,引發新一輪野釣戰,而中國的釣者則更青睞精養魚池。1

识鱼
鱼类的视力不如人类,距离、宽度均无法和人类的视力比较,鱼类对水色、绿色比较敏感,鱼类的嗅觉非常灵敏,鱼类的听觉也非常灵敏,钓鲤鱼时,不能在岸上大声谈笑、走动不停,鱼类的思考能力非常弱,鱼类应对周边环境随着气象、水温、水色、潮流、流速、水量的变化而变化,于是便出现了在同一个池塘、水库、湖泊,往日钓鱼收获大,今日少,上午收获大,下午少,晴天大,雨天少等情况。2:114-117淡水钓鱼,中国大陆经常垂钓的鱼类对象是本地鲫鱼、日本鲫、非洲鲫、鲤鱼、游鱼、罗非鱼、黄刺鱼(黄鸭叫)、黄尾、鳊鱼、青鱼、草鱼、鲢鱼、鳙鱼,台湾经常垂钓的鱼类对象是本地鲫鱼、日本鲫、吴郭鱼(罗非鱼)、溪哥仔和红猫(粗首马口鱲)、斗鱼、罗汉鱼、苦花、三角姑(河鮠)、竹蒿头(密鱼)。2:117
