St. Paddy's Day
March 17th is right around the corner! Whether you are Irish or not, it's a time to let loose and have some fun. While St. Patrick’s Day is a fun and wild holiday in the United States, there is more to it than most people know.
Did you know St. Patrick wasn’t actually Irish? That’s correct; he was actually born in England, not Ireland. Also, people in Ireland wear blue on St. Paddy’s Day, not green. The color green started as an American tradition because it was easily associated with Ireland.
The most popular drink on St. Patrick’s Day for Americans is the Irish Car Bomb. The drink itself was not actually invented in Ireland, but in St. Norwich, Connecticut. It was concocted at Wilson’s Saloon in 1979 and was only named ‘Irish’ because the use of Irish alcohols.
