About St. Patrick’s Day
Surprisingly, St. Patrick’s Day was celebrated as a public holiday in the States before in Ireland, where it was previously celebrated only as a religious holiday. The Charitable Irish Society of Boston organized the first St. Patrick’s Day parade in 1737 and New York’s parade began in 1762. Though St. Patrick’s Day become a public and bank holiday in the Republic of Ireland in 1903, the Irish government began a campaign only in the mid 1990’s for a more secular celebration of Ireland and its culture on St. Patrick’s Day, complete with four-day festival.
