This Saint Patrick Kids Sweatshirt is made of ultra-soft, preshrunk fleece that feels wonderful against the skin. The garment is 50% cotton 50% polyester with reduced lint buildup. This makes an excellent combination for printing. The front has a kangaroo pocket big enough for both hands. The neck is reinforced with twill taping.
Saint Patrick was an early Christian missionary and is the primary patron saint of Ireland. He is credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland and was probably partly responsible for the Christianization of the Picts and Anglo-Saxons.
Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated on March 17, his religious feast day and the anniversary of his death in the fifth century. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over 1,000 years since his time. On St. Patrick's Day, which falls during the Christian season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. Lenten prohibitions against the consumption of meat were waived and people would dance, drink and feast-on food like Irish bacon and cabbage.
