Today (March 17) is St. Patrick's Day (St. Pat's Day for short) in Ireland,
the UK, US, Canada and other countries with many immigrants of Irish background.
St. Pat's Day is a celebration to honor St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.
Symbols of this holiday include: shamrocks, leprechauns,
and the color green, as a nickname for Ireland is "the Emerald Isle."
One fun tradition that some big cities do for St. Pat's Day is to dye the river green.
Famous cities that dye their river green include Chicago and Boston.
In 1961, Chicago started the tradition of dying the river green for one day.
The dye is non-toxic, and its formula is a closely guarded secret.
