Did you know:

The world’s first St. Patrick’s Day parade occurred on March 17, 1762, in New York City, featuring Irish soldiers serving in the English military. This parade became an annual event, with President Truman attending in 1948.

According to the latest data, 36.3 million U.S. residents claim Irish ancestry. This number is more than eight times the population of Ireland itself (4.4 million). Irish is the second most frequently reported ancestry in the U.S., trailing only German.

Corned beef and cabbage is a traditional St. Patrick’s Day dish. The corned beef that celebrants will eat may very well have originated in Texas, which produces 6.5 billion pounds worth of beef annually. The largest producers of cabbage annually are New York, which produces 584 million pounds and California, which produces 528 million pounds.

The first day of spring is March 20!
