Happy St. Patrick's Day!

March 15, 2013 / by Mango Languages

St. Patricks Day is is quickly approaching and Mango Languages has just what you need to speak a little Irish on St. Patricks Day. But first, check out some of these fun trivia facts about this green holiday:

  • The very first St. Patrick’s Day parade was not in Ireland. It was in Boston in 1737.
  • Green is associated with Saint Patrick’s Day because it is the color of spring, of Ireland, and of the shamrock.
  • 19 Presidents of the United States proudly claim Irish heritage—including our first President, George Washington.
  • There are four places in the United States named Shamrock (West Virginia, Texas, Indiana, Oklahoma) and nine Dublin's (Dublin, California and Dublin, Ohio are most populous)

Using our Irish course, you won't only learn how to converse in Irish, but you'll also learn some insight into the Irish culture.

And if you'd like to ask someone if they would like something to drink...

Or if you find yourself on the receiving side of that question...

From everyone at Mango, we wish you a happy and safe St. Patrick's Day!
