I'm loving the matching green ties President Obama and Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen wore today during a shamrock ceremony at the White House. It seems a little strange to me that Irish leaders come to America for St. Patrick's Day. Shouldn't it be the other way around?
Either way, it's obvious that St. Patrick's Day celebrations aren't confined to Ireland. For example, New York City held its 248th annual St. Patrick's Day parade today. Check out how the world celebrates the traditionally Irish holiday!
