St. Patrick’s has come to the stage and it is PARTY TIME! We<br />

all get dressed and go out to eat and drink beer, Irish beer that<br />

is, to be happy and swap jokes. The snowfall across the<br />

continent along with rain have been disastrous across the land.<br />

If you are okay cooking then invite your neighbors and have an<br />

Irish feed.<br />

We roamed all o<strong>ver</strong> the internet and we got a ni<strong>ce</strong> medium<br />

<strong>magazine</strong>, so, if you can fire up the grill and get things going if<br />

the kitchen is out of servi<strong>ce</strong>.<br />

So, if you’ve questions on your computer, <strong>ce</strong>ll phone or language<br />

problems then email us at computerease@juno.com and we will<br />

look into it.<br />

Yours and the staff!<br />

9 Destinations Around the World That Go<br />

All Out for St. Patrick’s Day<br />

Ireland isn’t the only pla<strong>ce</strong> that gets its green on—pack your bags (with<br />

leprechaun gear) for these global destinations, too.<br />

The luck of the Irish isn’t solely confined to its homeland. While <strong>ce</strong>lebrating St.<br />

Patrick’s Day in the Emerald Isle is <strong>ce</strong>rtainly an experien<strong>ce</strong> worth pursuing, you<br />

may be surprised by these other destinations that go gloriously green for the<br />

festivities, too. Check out which pla<strong>ce</strong>s around the world channel a little extra<br />

Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day—each with its own cultural twists.<br />

1. Montserrat<br />

A 17th-<strong>ce</strong>ntury Irish Catholic settlement formed deep cultural roots in this<br />

Caribbean island known as ―the other Emerald Isle‖—for this reason, the country’s<br />

St. Patrick’s Day <strong>ce</strong>lebrations still pack a surprisingly large punch. It’s one of the<br />

few pla<strong>ce</strong>s in the world besides Ireland where the day has been declared a public<br />

holiday, so expect its festivities to take the (pot o’) gold. Montserrat’s 10-day<br />


festival (March 10–19 in <strong>2023</strong>) also commemorates the country’s first slave<br />

rebellion and involves a street parade, lecture series, and se<strong>ver</strong>al fetes—plus a<br />

shamrock-shaped stamp on your passport to boot.<br />

2. Sydney, Australia<br />

For the Southern Hemisphere’s largest St. Patrick’s Day <strong>ce</strong>lebration, head to the<br />

Land Down Under. In Sydney, the areas of Circular Quay and the Rocks will host<br />

this year’s festivities, which are organized around family-fun events and a parade.<br />

The area will transform into an Irish village featuring local food vendors, craft<br />

stalls, and live musical performan<strong>ce</strong>s. The <strong>2023</strong> parade kicks off on Argyle Street at<br />

9:30 a.m. First Fleet Park on Sunday, March 19, and culminates in First Fleet Park<br />

under the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Be sure to look across the water at the Sydney<br />

Opera House: It’s lit green for the holiday.<br />


3. Chicago, Illinois<br />

For more than 50 years, the Windy City has <strong>ce</strong>lebrated St. Patrick’s Day with a<br />

colorful tradition: by coloring the Chicago Ri<strong>ver</strong> bright green. On the Saturday<br />

before St. Patrick’s Day in Chicago, thousands of spectators gather along the ri<strong>ver</strong><br />

in the morning to watch an environmentally-safe dye change the ri<strong>ver</strong>’s hues for a<br />

few hours. Then, even larger crowds gather for the city’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade<br />

(this year’s iteration took pla<strong>ce</strong> on March 11, <strong>2023</strong>), which features troops of Irish<br />

step dan<strong>ce</strong>rs and bagpipers traveling up Columbus Drive starting at around noon.<br />

4. Montreal, Canada<br />

North America’s most European city has been channeling Ireland on St. Paddy’s<br />

Day for ages. The long-standing parade in Montreal has <strong>march</strong>ed on the holiday<br />

e<strong>ver</strong>y year sin<strong>ce</strong> 1824, sans a single can<strong>ce</strong>llation before 2020. Marching bands,<br />

bagpipes, floats, local residents, and even a massive St. Patrick himself commit to<br />

three hours of annual festivities, snow or shine. This year, the 198th Montreal St.<br />

Patrick’s Day Parade will take pla<strong>ce</strong> on Sainte-Catherine Street in the downtown<br />

area starting at 12 p.m. on March 19. C’est la vie canadienne!<br />

5. New York City<br />

Parade fanatic? Manhattan’s mayhem is the St. Paddy’s pla<strong>ce</strong> for you. In addition to<br />

the Empire State Building turning green for the occasion, the Big Apple goes big<br />

with the holiday’s largest parade in the world: the affair attracting some 2 million<br />

attendees that features about 150,000 dan<strong>ce</strong>rs, musicians, and more. Cooler still?<br />

This New York City tradition has been in pla<strong>ce</strong> sin<strong>ce</strong> 1762, making its run longer<br />

than the United States has been a country. This year, the parade starts at 11 a.m. on<br />

Friday, March 17, and can be viewed along Fifth Avenue between 44th Street and<br />

79th Street.<br />

6. Tokyo, Japan<br />

Tokyo knows how to throw a photogenic costume-filled street party, and the city’s<br />

St. Patrick’s Day <strong>ce</strong>lebrations are no ex<strong>ce</strong>ption. For its 28th year in Japan’s capital,<br />

the Irish-themed parade took pla<strong>ce</strong> on March 12, <strong>2023</strong>, in the Omotesando district<br />

(a five-minute walk from Harajuku Station). And for two days the ―I Love Ireland<br />

Festival‖ annually comes to Yoyogi Park. This <strong>ce</strong>lebration is a couple of days of<br />

food, drinking, and o<strong>ver</strong>all fun at Asia’s largest Irish festival.<br />

7. London, England<br />

Just a stone’s throw away from the Emerald Isle itself, London doesn’t shy away<br />

from St. Patrick’s Day festivities. The annual parade—this year on March 12—<br />

kicks off from Hyde Park Corner, in the heart of the city. After passing some of<br />


London’s most iconic landmarks, the party continues at Trafalgar Square, where an<br />

hours-long entertainment festival hosts live performan<strong>ce</strong>s by well-known musical<br />

acts. Of course, more rambunctious revelers will enjoy special events at various<br />

Irish pubs surrounding the square. The London Eye turns into eye candy as well,<br />

illuminated with a shamrock hue.<br />

8. Boston, Massachusetts<br />

Boston is largely regarded as one of the most Irish cities in the United<br />

States, which becomes especially evident e<strong>ver</strong>y year in March. Check out<br />

the spirited St. Patrick’s Day Parade in South Boston on March 19, which<br />

attracts more than 1 million spectators annually. From March 16 through<br />

March 19, you can also enjoy a live performan<strong>ce</strong> by local Celtic punkrock<br />

band the Dropkick Murphys at the House of Blues or the MGM<br />

Music Hall at Fenway. The Boston band puts on a weekend of special St.<br />

Patrick’s Day con<strong>ce</strong>rts e<strong>ver</strong>y year—prepare to get your world<br />

(sham)rocked.<br />


9. Munich, Germany<br />

Germany is another country worth visiting for the holiday. Munich shuts down<br />

Leopold Street (Leopoldstrasse) for its St. Patrick’s parade, making way for a green<br />

sea of floats and performers bursting with general Bavarian merriment. After a preparade<br />

affair (involving music and dan<strong>ce</strong>rs) on Saturday and the parade on Sunday,<br />

a street food festival is held in Odeonsplatz, offering international food served to<br />

the sounds of live Celtic music performan<strong>ce</strong>s. Guinness steins are encouraged.<br />
