Pot of Gold at the End of a Rainbow!
People from all over the world celebrate on March 17th in honor of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. St. Patrick’s Day was first publicly celebrated in Boston in 1737 where there was a large population of Irish immigrants. Nearly 200 years later, the first St. Patrick’s Day parade in the Irish Free State was held in Dublin in 1931. Throughout the years, this celebration has evolved to become a celebration of Irish heritage. Along with legendary shamrocks, many symbols were included in festivities that are reflective of Ireland’s folklore, culture and national identity - leprechauns, ethnic foods, shamrocks, wearing green...even finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow!
