or as we say in Mass- Happy Evacuation Day ; )
Did you know that according to wikipedia, “St. Patrick’s Day is indirectly observed as an official holiday in Boston, as it coincides with the official Evacuation Day holiday observed annually since 1901 to commemorate the day in 1776 that British troops ended their occupation of Boston.”?
Good thing too. Who knew that the day the brits pulled out of Boston harbor for good had to forever be acknowledged with parades, dancing, music, corned beef, the wearing of the green, and a whole lot of drinking?
Absolutely! So, on March 17, all Bostonians are Irish-
Because everyone loves to party.
Erin go Bragh!
Have a great day, everyone!
