When Irish Eyes Are Smiling

The countdown continues

Christmas Day was a sunny 60 degrees in Savannah. With most of the pubs and restaurants closed for the holiday or at least until dinner, save for a handful of places, Anne and I decided to seize the day and explore the city. While walking downtown, we came upon the official headquarters of the Savannah St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee.

Savannah takes its St. Patrick’s Day seriously, and the city’s parade is the nation’s second largest after New York City, with as many as 750,000 attendees recorded one year. There’s even a clock located in the headquarters’ window, displaying the exact time left until St. Patrick’s Day in days, hours, minutes, and seconds!

For more information on Savannah’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, please check out the committee’s website below. Cead Mille Failte!
