Happy St. Patrick's Day! Once again, it's time for the wearing of the green. Many Americans, Irish or not, celebrate the Feast of St. Patrick every March 17th. Parades march, green beer flows, and corned beef and cabbage can be found in many pots.

Would you like to know a few interesting facts about St. Patrick and the celebration?

St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, was not Irish. He was born in Britain.

The Irish have observed March 17, the anniversary of his death in the fifth century, as a religious holiday for thousands of years.

The very first St. Patrick's Day parade took place not in Ireland, but in the United States. Irish soldiers, serving in the English Military, marched through New York City on March 17, 1762.

And the story about the snakes? It isn't true. It has long been said that St. Patrick once stood on a hilltop and banished all the snakes from Ireland. In fact, the island nation was never the home to any snakes.

Fact or folklore, we can all be Irish on St. Patrick's Day. Put on your green and celebrate with our St. Patrick's Punch!
