#StPatrick’s Day とは？～（歴史はこの数行に凝縮されていますね。海外で日本をトップに記述するあたりが心憎い・・・）
St. Patrick’s Day, a holiday imported by Irish immigrants, is celebrated across the United States. It is the occasion for city-sponsored festivities and parades in many countries, including Japan, Australia, Canada, Malaysia, Great Britain, the United States and Ireland. The largest parades are held in Dublin (Ireland), New York City, Montreal and Boston. The first recorded celebration of St. Patrick’s Day in the American colonies was in Boston in 1737, and the first St. Patrick’s Day celebration in New York City was held at the Crown and Thistle Tavern in 1756.
