Although St Patrick's Day was recognised as an official feast day back in the 1600s, the day that honours Ireland's Patron Saint did not become a national holiday until 1903. Since then the national holiday has spread right across the globe and has evolved into a celebration of Irish culture.
Dublin hosts one of the biggest St Patrick’s Day celebrations with over one million visitors on hand to enjoy the festivities annually. Around the world there are St Patrick's Day parades in the USA, Australia, Canada, the UK and New Zealand to name a few. Many of the day’s parades such as those in San Francisco and New Orleans feature floats, jazz bands and colourful costumes.
