St. Patty's Day is on the way!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Cash America! It is that time of year to wear green and celebrate the Irish. We may be a few days early, but who’s counting? The Irish holiday is observed each spring and whether or not you can trace your family back to Ireland, the day typically gives everyone a reason to celebrate.

The day is held in honor of the fifth century’s Saint Patrick, who is the patron saint and national apostle of Ireland. Today, however, St. Patrick’s Day has become a celebration of all things Irish. To get you in an Irish mood, here are some fun facts about Irish cultural and St. Patrick’s Day celebrations:

-St. Patrick’s Day is held every year on March 17.

-Leprechauns and their hidden pot of gold at the end of rainbows come from Irish folklore.

-Members of the band U2 are all from Ireland.

-The Guinness Book of World Records can trace its origin to Ireland.

-There are more than 100 St. Patrick’s Day parades held across the United States, the largest taking place in New York City and Boston.

-During the New York City celebration, there are no cars or floats like there are in typical parades. Instead, thousands of people march on foot.

-Several U.S. cities share the name of Dublin, Ireland’s capital city. These cities include Dublin, California; Dublin, Ohio; and Dublin, Texas.

-Cabbage and corned beef is a traditional St. Patrick’s Day dish.

So, next Sunday, grab your green drinks and throw on your green shirts to celebrate this notoriously fun day. May the luck of the Irish be with you!

Happy St. Patty’s Day, from Cash America!
