Happy St. Patricks Day!

Fun Facts:

Did you know the first St. Patrick's Day parade took place, not in Ireland, but in the United States?  The earliest parade date noted was in 1737 in Boston.

St. Patty's didn't become a national holiday in Ireland until 1903 and the first parade there wasn't until 1931 in Dublin.

Saint Patrick was not Irish by birth; he was a Romano-Briton Christian missionary born in England.  His true given name was Maewyn Succat.

An estimated 13 million pints of Guinness will be consumed on St. Patrick's Day 2010, according to a Guinness spokesman.

The color originally associated with St. Patrick was blue; green became associated during the 19th century.

The Dusty Boot in Beaver Creek will be serving corned beef and cabbage all day long as well as green beers, Guinness and shots of Jameson.   Stop by before returning to your favorite Dean Johnson Management property!  www.beavercreekluxuryrentals.com
