Happy St. Patrick's Day

It's that day again! St. Patrick's Day

Although many will be too inebriated to actually do so, it is the day to celebrate and remember St. Patrick. Here's a bit of history about the man and the holiday.
  • In Chicago, they color the river green each year.
  • In New York City, we hold the largest parade in the world.
  • In many places, beverages, especially beer, is dyed green.
  • Corned beef and cabbage is the food to order.
  • Green articles of clothing are worn.
  • Everyone is Irish.
Also, it's the founding day of Delta Phi Epsilon Sorority.

The die that is used to color the Chicago River green is actually orange. Once it hits the water, it turns green.

It's true.
