"It all started 20 years ago with my friend Father Tom Goggin, who asked me to try and start up a Fort Myers Beach St. Patrick Day Parade like they had done in Naples", Murphy said.

"I am most like my father so my mother broke down crying so it was really kind of cool, it was bittersweet because he wasn't here and in his memory", he said.

Guinness brewed in Australia has never been more faithful to that produced in Ireland, the brewer says, but not everyone is convinced.

Parades are also common, Heffernan adds. Kenny & Ziggy's is offering its Corned Beef & Cabbage dinner (which includes two sides and a house salad) and a bottle of beer for $17.99 (normally $22.95 not including beer.) The special is only available on Thursday, March 15th from 6 p.m.to closing and is a salute to the Irish-Jewish founded Yiddish Sons of Erin.

The modern St. Paddy's Day celebrations arrived in Ireland in the mid-to-late 1990s, as the country began to develop a stronger cultural identity and sought to promote tourism. The New York City St. Patrick's Day Parade is the largest parade in the world. The pub promises live music, drink specials and a chance to win a Nitro Stout keg party. "You see it, but it's not that common". For others, it's a day of celebrating being Irish or having Irish heritage, when you can cook up a cabbage stew and wash it down with a Guinness, and perhaps even sing a traditional Irish tune.

I'll play along Saturday, wear green, "glory in" corned beef and cabbage and celebrate yet another colorful part of our nation's history. We went home that day and she made sure he was wearing green.

And, of course, Ireland's nickname as the Emerald Isle (due to its lush green countryside) may have something to do with green's association with the country.

Salt Lake City's Irish community will hold its 40th annual St. Patrick's Day parade and party Saturday, March 17. Beginning at 11 a.m., children can dip and decorate at a green-themed Rice Krispie Treat station.

John Friia is a freelance journalist and native New Yorker writing about food, drinks and lifestyle. "The very vivid imagination of the Irish mind helped to speed ideas (like these) along".

St. Patrick's Day is better still when it falls on a weekend, so plan accordingly. The event is both a nod to the fact that St. Patrick allegedly banished all the snakes from Ireland and a great time to check out some slithery pals.
