Sen. Nelson’s St. Patrick’s Day Factoid


Florida Senator Bill Nelson (D) stated on the Senate floor a little fun-filled fact that most Americans did not know about St. Patrick’s Day. According to Nelson, the St. Patrick’s Day parade was first held in St. Augustine, Florida, and not in New York City or Boston.

Did you know this? You probably didn’t. Know need to fact check this, we will leave it stand. Why not?
