A Leprechaun Just Told Me...

The very first civic and public celebration of St. Patrick’s Day was in Boston in 1737.

The first St. Patrick’s Day celebrated in New York City was in 1756 at the Crown and Thistle Tavern.

St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, was born around AD 385 in Wales.

So Patrick has a halo... big deal. I think every May 28th should be declared Saint Michael’s Day, with parades and concerts and lots of wine and bawdy joke telling. Debauchery at its finest. It will add a true meaning to being "saintly."

Now if I can only find that telephone number I have for the pope... 1-900...
