St. Patrick’s Day in Sacramento is Greener than Green
Emerald Green. Forrest Green. Lime Green. Seafoam Green. Pine Green. Light Green. Dark Green. Yellow-Green. Blue-Green. Hunter Green. Army Green.
No matter your favorite variation, everything today seems to be about the green. You’re green with envy, you’re green-friendly. There’s the Green Party, green tea, and good old jealousy – the green-eyed monster. But come this weekend – green is what you better be wearing if you want to avoid the looming pinch of friends and acquaintances.
According to the History Channel,
“St. Patrick is believed to have driven the snakes from Ireland. The St. Patrick’s day we celebrate today is based on the original saint’s feast day also thought to be the date of St. Patrick’s death. In 1737, Irish immigrants to the United States began observing the holiday publicly in Boston and held the first St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New York City in 1766.”
If Ireland isn’t on the books for your St. Patrick’s Day weekend, do not fret – there are plenty of options right here in Sacramento!
