St. Patrick’s Day
Celebrating the patron saint of Ireland, its said that on St. Patrick’s Day everyone is Irish! The day is celebrated worldwide with parades, green beer and parties!

Kiss Me I’m Irish buttons will be everywhere and wearing the color of the Irish – green – has become ‘de rigeur.’ The color is found everywhere today, with green hair making a big showing, as well as green food – bagels, McDonald’s milk shakes, and of course green beer.

And while some cities paint the traffic stripes of their parade routes green, Chicago will be dying its river green. Savannah GA turns its downtown city fountains green and in Indianapolis the Central Canal will be green.

And don’t forget to visit our St. Patrick’s Day celebration – St. Patrick’s Day on the Net.
