Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Yesterday was st. patrick’s day. It was marked today by the St. Patrick Day’s parade. The biggest on this side of the Atlantic if not for the one in New York. To give you an idea of the size of the parade, basically, the parade started at 12pm and we watched all the way till 2pm before we left and the parade still stretched as far back as our eyes could see. It took place down the main street of downtown Montreal, somewhat akin to Orchard Road in Singapore. I guess you could equate the parade to Chingay in Singapore, except larger and with a distinct Irish influence. (It originates from Ireland after all.)
