Saint Patrick's Day in New York
Traditionally, Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated as a religious holiday in Ireland and other areas. Ironically, scores of Irish citizens make the trip across the pond to experience the more festive American flavor of Green Day, akin to the pilgrimage to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. Whether you go to church, the parade or a pub, this is one of the city's most exuberant annual celebrations.
New Yorkers have their own unique way of celebrating Saint Patrick's Day, The Wearing of the Green. Green clothes, green flowers, and green hats are standard, but you'll also find unique green beers, green bagels, green water fountains, and even a green Empire State Building.
