For my seventeenth Turnstile NYC Thursday, I am going to write about something that you need to see, if you are in the city on St. Patrick's Day. I am going to write about a parade, that I know a lot of people who have marched in it. I am going to write about the St. Patrick's Day Parade!
The St. Patrick's Day parade goes right now the middle of the city. It is such a great sight to see. The entire city is bathed in green, from the streets, all the way to the top of the Empire State Building. The parade is a great celebration of the Irish culture, and also the cities culture. Remember the old saying on this day, "That everyone on March 17th is Irish!"
There is not much else to write about for the parade. This was the second parade that I have written about, the first being all the way back in Turnstile NYC Thursday II, with the Thanksgiving Day Parade in the city.
Now also, to show the spirt of today, I love all the music that you hear today. I love bagpipe music, and also old Irish spirituals. There is one song that never gets played on the radio, except for one day in the year, and that is the Unicorn Song, by The Irish Rovers. I am putting that song down below, to make the post look festive.
This song is basically writing about Noah's Ark, and how he took two of every animal on the Ark, but he forgot the unicorn, and that is why we don't have unicorns running around the place in this day and age. It came out in 1968, and it is one of my favorite songs to sing around this time of year.
I hope you that you all enjoy the song, and also, that you all enjoyed the post!
Did you like the post? Did you like the song? Is the song funny, because if it is, then you really got the message!
