March 17th is the day many of us claim to be just a little bit Irish. From drinking green beer, attending parades and even turning rivers to flow green, St Patrick’s Day is a day of celebration. People today honor Irish heritage and its rich culture and traditions. Cities all over the U.S. celebrate with parades and festivities. The most famous of these annual festival traditions includes the Boston parade, with its first parade in 1737; the New York City parade, which began in 1762; and the Savannah, Georgia, parade which started in 1812. What do you do to honor Irish tradition? Wear green? Look for four-leaf clovers? Sing Irish songs?
