London Eye

All the merrymaking on St. Patrick’s Day has a big impact on local businesses (a study from more than a decade ago estimated the holiday generated $30 million in Savannah, Ga., for example)—all the more reason to paint the town green. The London Eye Ferris wheel will again turn green on March 17 this year as part of a partnership with Tourism Ireland. This is the fourth St. Patrick’s Day for which the tourism agency has organized “greenings” of things around the world—from monuments to a flock of sheep. This year’s list adds the Pyramids of Giza and the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro.
