Today in History
 
In 1762, the first recorded St. Patrick's Day Parade was held in New York City. The festivities, which celebrated the fourth-century patron saint of the Emerald Isle, were put on by Irish soldiers in the British army. As the Irish immigration population in the U.S. spiked in the 19th century, the day of revelry soon became widespread across the country. Read about some of the most unusual Saint Patrick's Day celebrations today.
