Hi there! As you may know, last Thursday was March the 17th, also known as St. Patrick’s Day. In New York this is an event not to be missed!
The story of St Patrick
Ireland had as patron named St Patrick, who was the founder of Christianism there. According to the legend, he used a clover to explain one of the religion’s foundation. This is why green in general, and clover are so important for the Irish community. They became both symbols of this celebration and emblems of the country.
Where to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day in New York?
The city of New York and its inhabitants are turning green every year, and for the occasion, a parade is organized along the 5th avenue. It’s starting in front of St. Patrick’s Church (whatelse?!) and finishing in Central Park. The atmosphere is very friendly and, yes ladies, the answer to your question … many men are wearing kilts and playing bagpipes! In the evening, many pubs continue this celebration until the end of the morning, since as you know, in New York, no one sleeps!
