One for the most important things that Irish people credit St. Patrick for is the banishment of all the snakes from Ireland, which represent the eradication of the pagan ideology from the country as well as the triumph of Christianity. The people of Ireland believe that while St. Patrick was on his mission, he stood on top of a hill and banished all the snakes from the country. Today, the people of Ireland commemorate St. Patrick’s Day by considering it as an “All Snakes Day” where they wear as many snake symbols as possible and write songs that call for the return of the “snakes.”
