History

Did you know blue was the color first associated with St. Patrick’s Day?  How about the first ever St. Patrick’s Day Parade occurred on March 17, 1762 in New York City?

While celebrating on March 17th, take a minute to think about the history of why St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated in the first place.  As demonstrated by the below Infographic, the history of St. Patrick’s Day dates all the way back to 395 AD!  Be a hit at this year’s St. Patrick’s Day party by telling all your friends some fun facts about the holiday!  For example, while wearing your fun and festive leprechaun costume, you can explain that the leprechaun as a symbol for St. Patrick’s Day has no direct relationship with St. Patrick himself.  It was first associated with the holiday from a 1959 Walt Disney movie in which the characters depicted are an Americanized version of Irish folklore subjects.  Find out this and much more by checking out our St. Patrick’s Day Infographic below!
