A holiday gift basket can also provide the perfect ice breaker.
On March 17 1762 Irish soldiers who served in the English military marched through New York City. The parade and music stirred their emotions and brought back memories of Ireland and fellow soldiers they had lost. Irish Americans began observing the holiday publicly in Boston and held the first St. Patrick s Day Parade (organized by the Charitable Irish Society) in New York City in 1766. Even today the St. Patrick Day parade is a mixture of religious beliefs and many people go to Ireland for the festivities fireworks and the parade. Parades take place in other places too: London Paris Rome Moscow Beijing Hong Kong Singapore as well as throughout the Americas.
Americans have adopted this holiday like fanatics: wearing green drinking (green) beer and eating corned beef and cabbage (sometimes green too). In Chicago the Chicago River is dyed green for the holiday! St. Patrick s Day is a fun holiday filled with friends food and drinking. Not to mention a lot of green.
