THE HISTORY

“March 17 commemorates the patron Saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick (who, interestingly, wasn’t Irish). It also honors Irish culture by encouraging folks to wear Ireland’s colors (green, white and orange), listen to Irish music and feast on traditional Irish meals. It’s also a day filled with parades and special events, usually with friends and family, where lots of photos are being taken.”
