If there is a day when all who enter in any bar in the world They feel Irish, that's March 17, St. Patrick's Day.

In addition to the fact that I have found Irish pubs from Cuzco (Peru) to Kanazawa (Japan), I have also encountered travelers, or migrants, Irish from Ulan Bator (Mongolia) to pre-democratic Burma / Myanmar.

Ireland is a country of emigrants that at some point in its history came to have almost as many Irish outside the country as within it.

Wherever they went, and they go, they infect locals with their humor, his way of facing the hardships of life and, especially his craic, an atmosphere of fun, good atmosphere, good vibes.

And that atmosphere of good atmosphere you will breathe a little more all over the world with greenings, when monuments and buildings around the world, thanks to play of lights, they will turn green.

Participate in the St. Patrick's contest and take a basket of Irish products

Right now we are in the big week of Ireland with the celebration of St. Patrick and the Irish Tourist Office wants to celebrate it with a contest with which you can win a fantastic basket of irish products.

If you want to see the mechanics of the contest you can access the contest from the Official tourism website of Ireland.

The color of the Emerald Island, one of the nicknames of the green Ireland, will be applied to the London Eye ferris wheel in London, to the Empire State Building in New York, the Chicago Opera, the Niagara Falls (that should be very curious to see ), the Sydney Opera House, the Colosseum in Rome, or the Cibeles fountain in Madrid, among many other buildings to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

Countries like the United States, with a large number of descendants of Irish emigrants, also celebrate massive and striking parades, where there is no shortage of bagpipes and drums bands, in addition to that (as in Chicago or New York), they color green emblematic buildings.
