St. Patricks Day Celebration and Irish Gift Baskets St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and every March 17th, America turns green to celebrate. Although St. Patricks Day is a traditional Irish holiday, Americans have adopted the spirit of the holiday and have done so avidly. It is a little known trivia fact that the first holiday parade celebrating St. Patrick was not held in Ireland, as many might think, but in America. American and Irish Americans are passionate about this holiday and it seems like all the world celebrates St Patty’s Day. Anyone visiting Chicago on March 17th will be greeted with the Chicago River turned green. Or visit any pub or bar and Green Beer flows. Corned beef and cabbage is the traditional dinner fare for the day along with that big frosty cold mug of green beer. Kiss me I’m Irish buttons are proudly worn.
