St. Patrick’s Day Facts & Trivia

In Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day is a religious holiday similar to Christmas and Easter.

Erin go Bragh translates to “Ireland forever.”

The very first St. Patrick’s Day parade was not in Ireland. It was in Boston in 1737.

The largest parade in the US, held since 1762, is in New York City, and draws more than one million spectators each year.

Over 100 US cities hold a parade every year. Some of the other biggest St. Patrick’s Day parades are in Chicago, Illinois and Savannah, Georgia.

In 1948 President Truman became the first president to attend a St. Patrick’s Day parade.

The city of Chicago goes so far to celebrate that they dye their river green.

Green is associated with Saint Patrick’s Day because it is the color of spring, of Ireland, and of the shamrock.

    You’re putting me in the mood and I’m not even Irish! Though not sure how I can eat those yummy treats and still fit in those gorgeous frocks? That’s the beauty of your blog. I’ve had a couple cocktails, indulged in gooey green brownies and spinned in my green skirt…and I haven’t even got out of bed yet! School holiday here and next weekend is a st paddy day basketball tournament in Knoxville and I’m hoping to grab a few spectators for a pint or two between games. I should bring those brownies too….
