Throwback: St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is approaching fast and leprechauns, fairies and clans of Irish decent are preparing a parade and feast to celebrate. Of course it is widely known that ‘Everyone is Irish on March 17. St. Patrick’s Day’. The earliest recorded St. Patrick’s Day observance took place in 1737 in Boston.

Twenty-three U.S. presidents, including President Biden, have Irish roots. Andrew Jackson is the only president whose parents were both born in Ireland.
