Did you know?

St Patrick’s Day is celebrated in Ireland, and Irish people wear green clothes on March 17th. Even their cookies are green on that day! It is also celebrated in New York where many Irish immigrants arrived in the 19th century. For the occasion, the Hudson River is dyed green.

St. Patrick's Day is with us,
The day when all that's seen
To right and left and everywhere
Is green, green, green!
And Irish tunes they whistle
And Irish songs they sing,
To-day each Irish lad walks out
As proud as any king.
I'll wear a four-leaf shamrock
In my coat, the glad day through,
For my father and mother are Irish
And I am Irish too!

I'll wear a Shamrock, Mary Carolyn Davies.
