The Irish have observed March 17th as a religious holiday for over 1,000 years. The largest celebration to honor their patron Saint Patrick, is held in Dublin and extends over a period of several days. Did you know that there are currently seven times more Americans with an Irish background than the population of Ireland itself! In the United States 39% of the entire population don their green attire when observing St. Patrick’s Day and over 100,000 people watch as the Chicago River is turned green on this very special day. This holiday has traditionally been a feasting day, partaking in food choices of Ireland – Corned beef, cabbage, and Irish brandy, among the favorite choices.
