ST. PATRICKâ€™S DAY IN THE USA
Though St. Patrick's Day originated in Ireland, the , parties, and practice of dyeing rivers green is a purely American tradition and celebration of Irish-American pride. The holiday was first celebrated in 18th- and 19th-century as a small religious celebration in honor of an important figure in Irish history.
The Greening of America
The first St. Patrick's Day parades or celebrations date back to the 18th century, celebrated by Irishmen within the British Army in America. In the 19th century, millions of Irish immigrated to the U.S., and they wanted to remember the country they'd left behind.
It was Ìýin the early 19th century that you saw municipal celebrations of St. Patrick's Day in places like Boston or New York, and they spread to other places with large Irish populations; as Irish Americans become politically powerful in big cities, cities themselves begin to back St. Patrick's Day parades celebrations.
St. Patrickâ€™s Day Fun Facts:
There are 34 million U.S. Residents who have Irish Ancestry.Ìý Ireland has a population of 3.9 million.
Delaware, Massachusetts and New Hampshire have the largest populations of Irish Americans.
There are nine U.S. cities that share the name of Irelandâ€™s capital, Dublin.

FAMOUS BIRTHDAY OF THE MONTH
Born in Ulm, WÃ¼rttemberg, Germany in 1879, Albert Einstein had a passion for inquiry that eventually led him to develop the special and general theories of relativity. In 1921, he won the Nobel Prize for physics for his explanation of the photoelectric effect and immigrated to the U.S. in the following decade after being targeted by the Nazis. Einstein is generally considered the most influential physicist of the 20th century, with his work also having a major impact on the development of atomic energy. Einstein died on April 18, 1955, in Princeton, New Jersey.
