St. Patrick Is a Paesano
March 17 is the feast day of St. Patrick, known to Italians as San Patrizio. Although Patrizio’s celebration is overshadowed – in Italy at least – by that of San Giuseppe (St. Joseph) on March 19, Patrizio has his own ties to Italy. His parents were Romans.
Viva St. Joseph
Two days after we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, Italians and Italian-Americans celebrate the Feast of St. Joseph on the 19th of March. The Feast of St. Joseph began in Sicily when during the middle ages the country was hit with drought and famine. The people of Sicily asked their Patron Saint, Joseph, to intervene. If he intervened and ended the drought the people of Sicily would have a feast honoring him.
