St. Patrick’s Day Tips

Did you know:

  • There are more Irish people in the United States than in all of Ireland?  
  • Until 1961, St. Patrick’s Day was a dry holiday in Ireland because it was considered a holy day?  
  • The official color of St. Patrick’s Day used to be blue but became green in the 1700s as a symbol of nationalism.  
  • The four leaves of the shamrock are supposed to symbolize love, faith, hope, and luck? 
  • Chicago celebrates St. Patrick’s Day by dying the river green, a tradition they started in 1962?  
  • St. Patrick was actually born in England but was captured by Irish pirates? 
  • According to Irish legend, there are no female leprechauns, only male? 
  • The very first St. Patrick’s Day parade was not held in Ireland, it took place in New York in 1766.
