St. Patrick's Day is celebrated on March 17, his religious feast day plus the anniversary of his death within the fifth century. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for more than a thousand years. On St. Patrick's Day, which falls for the duration of the Christian season of Lent, Irish households would traditionally attend church within the morning and celebrate within the afternoon. Lenten prohibitions against the consumption of meat had been waived and men and women would dance, drink and feast-on the standard meal of Irish bacon and cabbage.
The very first St. Patrick's Day parade took spot not in Ireland but inside the United States. Irish soldiers serving inside the English military marched by means of New York City on March 17, 1762. Together with their music, the parade helped the soldiers reconnect with their Irish roots, at the same time as fellow Irishmen serving inside the English army.
