St Patrick's Day

As children thoroughly enjoy many of the holidays throughout the year, St. Patrick's Day may very well be the adults' favorite. It is also a great time to learn about the mysterious and somewhat magical culture of Ireland. Read below to find out what makes St. Patrick's Day a favorite holiday of so many.

St. Patrick is the patron saint of engineers, Ireland and Nigeria. Green is the color used today in celebration of St. Patrick's Day. The association of the green color and St. Patrick 's Day can be traced as far back as the 17th century where green shamrocks were worn in celebration of St. Patrick's Day.

The first St. Patrick's Day celebration in the United States took place in Boston, Massachusetts in 1737. Today, St. Patrick's Day is celebrated across the United States with parades and other activities. A few of the United States activities include Chicago, Illinois, where the city dyes its river green; Savannah, Georgia, where the city dyes its fountains green; and Hot Springs, Arkansas, where the shortest St. Patrick's Day parade is held.
