Formally, St. Patrick’s Day is recognized on March 17 as a day to celebrate the patron saint of Ireland.

Informally, St. Patrick’s Day is recognized on the weekends surrounding March 17 to celebrate drinking green beer and Irish whiskey at parades while wearing green.

While people often poke fun of the holiday by pointing out that those who celebrate aren’t even Irish, it turns out that the first official St. Patrick’s Day wasn’t celebrated in Ireland at all. It was actually in 1601 that Spanish colonists celebrated in St. Augustine, Florida.
