Celebrating the Green

Posted by mcm0704 on March 17, 2013 |

I thought I’d skip my usual book review and take a moment to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The number of people who claim some connection to Irish heritage always grows enormously every middle of March, as we all like to join in the fun of leprechauns, shamrocks, and green beer.

Did you know:

That more people celebrate the day in the United States than the number of residents in Ireland?

The first St. Patrick’s Day parade took place in Boston in 1737? The first parade in Ireland was in 1931.

That Saint Patrick was not Irish by birth? He was born in England.

What the first color associated with St. Pat was? Hint, it was not green. Ready? It was blue.

Trivia facts thanks to The Huffington Post.

Here’s wishing all who celebrate a Happy St. Patrick’s Day and good fortune to come.
