Well, lads, we did it! St. Patrick's Day 2017 is over. (Though of course that shouldn't deter you from declaring a St. Patrick's Weekend if you want to.)

The world showed up to revel for Ireland yesterday, with parades around the world, famous landmarks going green as part of Tourism Ireland's global greening initiative, songs sung, green clothes and accessories worn with aplomb, and many pints held aloft in cheers

Here's a look at how just a few different places across the globe celebrated St. Patrick's Day. How did you spend your day? Tell us in the comments or tag @IrishCentral in your photos and videos!

St. Patrick's Day parades may have originated in the US, but Dublin made up for that in no time - turning their parade into a swirling dream of color, music and pageantry. IrishCentral was there to live-stream the parade.

Ireland's Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Enda Kenny also stopped by One World Trade Center to flip a switch that would turn buildings across the city green for Paddy's Day.

In Chicago, the river was dyed green as is tradition, and the parade wound through the streets.
