happy st. patrick's day!

happy st. patrick's day! wear a bit of green to celebrate. everyone is part irish for the day :D and, if you're in nyc, try to catch some of the 248th edition of the parade on 5th avenue - the largest st. patrick's day parade in the world!

"The New York parade has become the largest Saint Patrick's Day parade in the world. In a typical year, 150,000 marchers participate in it, including bands, firefighters, military and police groups, county associations, emigrant societies, and social and cultural clubs, and 2 million spectators line the streets. The parade marches up 5th Avenue in Manhattan and is always led by the U.S. 69th Infantry Regiment."

i'm hoping to view some of it this afternoon...
