The saying goes, "On Saint Patrick's Day, everybody's Irish." Irish or not, many folks in North America celebrate the wearing of the Green on March 17. Be sure to wear green on St. Patrick's Day so you have good luck and so you don't get "pinched."

Celtic Theme Celebrations for St. Patrick's Day

Celtic art, history and Irish themes are popular all year long, but in mid-March, they become the focal point for most restaurants and pubs in North America, Austrialia and Ireland. In Ireland, St. Patrick's day is a religious holiday, and only recently were pubs and bars in Ireland allowed to be open to serve alcoholic beverages on March 17.

In the US and Canada, you'll find pubs filled with celebrants quaffing pints of Irish ale, Irish meals and even green beer. Ladies will wear green flowers, corsages , pins and decorative badges.

March 17 is a BIG DEAL at pubs and restaurants across the USA; New York, Chicago, Philadelphia and Boston hold spectacular parades to celebrate St. Patrick's Day - not without some controversy and plenty of merriment.
