☘ 🇮🇪 ☘
Today in Chicago, the city surprised residents by dying

the river green, as part of a St. Patrick's Day tradition! Usually there is a parade and many parties that go along with this, however with covid the parade was canceled.

But despite the pandemic, the city of Chicago dyed the river to keep the tradition going

The Chicago River has been dyed green every weekend before St Patrick's Day (on March 17th) since 1962. Thousands come to check out the river, drink green beer, and celebrate the holiday. In the Chicagoland area there are many people of Irish descent (including myself!)

here is a video showing a cool time-lapse of how they dye the river! ⬇️

Would you like to see the green Chicago River in person one day?

    @Jiro the river is dyed green to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. St. Patrick is the Patron Saint (in Catholicism) of Ireland. Since Ireland is associated with beautiful green scenery and green shamrocks, green is a color associated with Ireland 🇮🇪 (the flag even has green!). There a lot lof of people in Chicago with Irish heritage, so it is a very popular holiday here 😎 ☘ ☘ ☘
