Fun Fact 2 St. Patrick's day: St. Patrick origins

Fun Fact 2 about St. Patrick's day:
St. Patrick wasn't Irish.
Patrick's parents were Roman citizens living in modern-day England, or more precisely in Scotland or Wales (scholars cannot agree on which). He was born in 385 AD. By that time, most Romans were Christians and the Christian religion was spreading rapidly across Europe. 
So since Romans were Italians...more reason to love all my Irish friends!!!
