Boston: The Faces of St. Patrick’s Day

Today, I share the photo credit with my wife who made the latter two images, including sneaking past a bouncer to avoid the $10 cover charge to get the shot inside the pub. We spent yesterday walking around and checking out the people wandering about on St. Patrick’s Day. It was good fun. Cheers

      Thank you Alex. It is. There is a big population of people in the US whose family came from Ireland and people here seem to love an excuse for a party. People here also celebrate Mexican Cinco de Mayo but fewer of us are Mexican. Pretty soon we will adopt BG holidays. Cheers. πŸ˜ƒ

      They seemed to be having a good time marching with their pipes and drums from one pub to another. It was one way to avoid the cover charges. Happy Weekend.

        Very true! This happens with food, even language as well – in the US, we tend to adopt culinary, linguistic and other traditions of all the cultures that make up the US. This sort of cultural adaption is something I miss living in more traditional France (as well as other European nations). It makes sense – Europe has a much longer history/traditions than America so of course they’d be more attached to their own traditions than us! I still miss it though πŸ˜‰

        It has it’s pros and cons. I miss the depth of traditions that other countries possess. It is interesting, though, being such a recently formed place with so many different peoples settling the land. We’ll likely see more blending worldwide with the spread of globalization. Cheers!
