Every year on March 17, the Irish and the Irish-at-heart across the globe observe St. Patrick’s Day. What began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, special foods and a whole lot of green.
While St Patrick’s Day is not a legal holiday in the United States, it is widely recognized and observed throughout the country as a celebration of Irish and Irish-American culture. Celebrations include many displays of the color green, religious observances, and numerous parades. And for some people, alcohol is an integral part of the celebration. The holiday has been celebrated in North America since the late 18th century.
