Blessings about Ireland Hills as green as emeralds Cover the countryside Lakes as blue as sapphires- And Ireland’s special pride And rivers that shine like silver Make Ireland look so fair- But the friendliness of her people Is the richest treasure there. May the Irish hills caress you. May her lakes and rivers bless you. May the luck of the Irish enfold you. May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you May the enemies of Ireland never meet a friend. May luck be our companion May friends stand by our side May history remind us all Of Ireland’s faith and pride.

The first St. Patrick's Day in US was on 1600. An Irish priest called Fr. Richard Arthur was responsible for it and it was celebrated in St. Augustine, Florida. This priest also name St. Patrick the Patron of the corn (maize) growers. The first St. Patrick's Parade was done in 1601 in St. Augustine too. The bill for the fireworks that were used on the Parade is found in the Archives of Indes, in Seville, Spain. The discovery was done by Michael Francis a historian in the University of Florida at St. Petersburg. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ME7EHE5e4UY&feature=youtu.be
