Regardless of your actual heritage, everyone's a little bit Irish during the month of March. That might help explain why elaborate St. Patrick's Day celebrations can be found across the globe every year. Outside of Ireland, some of the biggest March 17 events are held in the U.S., many cities host parades, festivals, and plenty of Irish dancing. Throw on some green and get ready to party!

There are two major events happening rain, shine or snow in the Hudson Valley to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day:

1. About 6,000 people are expected to march in Yonkers at 1 pm on Saturday, March 18, starting at Hyatt and McLean Ave. 

2. The 55th parade kicks off in Pearl River , "the most Irish place in New York" at 1.30 pm, on Sunday, March 19. 

New York City also hosts the country's largest Saint Patrick's Day celebration today. It was almost an official holiday, as important as Christmas Eve or Good Friday when I worked for two Irish companies based in NYC and Westchester. 

Hope to see you at one of the events above! May all of us get a bit of luck of the Irish this weekend!
