(FOX19) -

Every year around March 17, the celebration of St. Patrick's Day goes way beyond Ireland's borders.

It began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland and has become an international phenomenon celebrating Irish culture with parades, shamrocks, food, drinking and lots of green.

Locally, you'll see people wearing leprechaun hats and drinking green beer all over town. And remember to always designate a sober driver before drinking or call a taxi to get home safely.
