Happy St. Patrick’s Day and may the luck of the Irish shine bright on your way!
Some fun facts:
- Saint Patrick wasn’t Irish, he was British. He’s known for bringing Christianity to Ireland in the year 432.
- The three-leaf shamrock was originally a teaching tool used by Saint Patrick to explain the Holy Trinity to the Irish (the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit).
- Chicago has been dying the Chicago River green since 1962. It takes over 40 tons of dye and the Chicago Plumbers Union is keeping that formula a secret, but this infographic will show you how they do it.
