Not too long ago I was visiting the ProFlowers blogs and a post about St. Patrick’s Day caught my attention. They had 15 interesting facts about St. Patrick’s Day. I wanted to share 4 things I learned from the post with you.

- The first St. Patrick’s Day celebration in the United States was held in Boston (1737).
- Shamrocks are the national flower/emblem of Ireland.
- The color of St. Patrick’s Day was originally blue.
