St. Patrick’s Day always falls on March 17. Its a day when the Irish and all the Irish at heart across the world celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a good reason to have fun and to do anything that you may think is somewhat Irish. Kids love to eat Lucky Charms for breakfast but many get extra special treats with Lucky Charms for dessert time, or they may cook cookies in the shape of a 4-leaf clover and decorate it with green icing. But the adults have taken another path, they may have an Irish meal to start off the night with corned beef and cabbage to celebrate St. Patricks Day and then by going on a pub crawl to hit as many Irish Pubs as they can while drinking Green Beer all night. “But if you participate in at least one of those activities on March 17, you’re in fact partaking in a celebration of the irish heritage of 33.1 million Americans, far more than the population of Ireland itself.”St. Patrick’s Day facts
Since I been in Boston this week, I been reading different articles about Boston to find out where the best bakery, restaurants and all that are. But I came across this interesting website that the first St. Patrick’s Day Parade did not originate from Ireland they actually think it was either in Boston in 1737 or in New York City in 1762, from then on this day has spread every where in the country as one of the most celebrated cultural events. This website also did a study that was very interesting to me so here is a bit of info on it and if you want to read more click the link above.
“In honor of St. Patrick’s Day and Irish-American Heritage Month, WalletHub’s number crunchers compared the 100 largest cities across 17 key metrics to find out which among them are worthy of the Irish’s approval when it comes to celebrating their ancestry. Our data set ranges from “number of Irish pubs and restaurants per capita” to “lowest price for a three-star hotel on St. Patrick’s Day” to “weather forecast” for the holiday.”
Boston made it to be #1 of this study, lucky me for being in Boston right now and I’m going to experience a good St. Patrick’s Day. I’m looking forward to tonight. But to my surprise Las Vegas where I live, only made the list at #40, being a 24/7 city that drinks and party all night I would have thought we rank a bit higher, but then again we don’t have lots of Irish pubs in Vegas.
Who doesn’t like a reason to wear green all day and drink green beer to go along with it, of course don’t forget to wear green, otherwise you can get pinched. How will you be spending your St. Patrick’s Day?
