Best St. Patrick’s Celebrations In The Boston Area
" Boston is one of the most Irish cities in the United States. Unfortunately, it was largely thanks to Ireland’s Potato Famine, but the cultural mark the large immigration of Irish individuals and families in the 19th century left on Boston is huge. When St. Patrick’s Day comes around, the people of Boston and the surrounding area celebrate the culture of one of its biggest demographics by throwing some of the best parties. These are for everyone, not just those of Irish descent, so anyone can join in the festivities.
