Going Green

Today everything and everybody are going green.
This blog is going green.
The beer is going green,
The frogs are going green - wait they are already in the right colour :o)

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is going green

5th Avenue in NewYork is going really green with the parade. But did you know, that the first Sct. Patrick's Day Parade was not held in Ireland but actually in NYC? It was Irish soldiers serving under the British, that did the first parade back in 1762 (source Tourism Ireland)

Happy Sct. Patrick's Day

The pictures are mostly shot during Sct Patrick's Day 2009 - Kermit the Frog is actually on display at the Smithsonian in Washington DC (picture taken in 2007)
