St Patricks Day Gifts / February 16, 2019 / Cristina Pennington
Depending on where you live you are likely to find the potential venues for a St. Patricks Day first date are quite incredible. Some of the best options include: Parades. Some communities host rather spectacular parades to celebrate Irish heritage. Complete with horses floats marching bands and more the festivities can go on for hours and are generally as much fun for adults as they are for kids. After all who can resist a parade? Irish pubs. Most Irish pubs also double as excellent dinner venues especially on St. Patricks Day. The atmosphere found within is particularly lively on this holiday.
A major parade takes place in Dublin and in most other Irish towns and villages. The three largest parades of recent years have been held in Dublin New York and Birmingham England. Parades also take place in other centers London Paris Rome Moscow Beijing Hong Kong Singapore and throughout the Americas. In the United States St. Patrick s Day would not be St. Patrick s Day unless the Chicago River is dyed green. Also St. Paddy s Day has little religious or historical significance. Established in Boston in 1737 it is essentially a time to put on a "Kiss Me I m Irish" button and parade drunken through the streets singing a mangled version of "Danny Boy" in celebration of one s real or imagined Irish ancestry.
