Amman Hotel Lights Up Ahead of Saint Patrick's Day

A hotel in Amman, Jordan, was lit up on March 16 as part of a Tourism Ireland initiative ahead of Saint Patrick’s Day.

The Global Greening campaign sees landmarks including the London Eye, Sydney Opera House, Rio de Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer, and the Colosseum in Rome turn a shade of green for March 17, Ireland’s national holiday.

“This year the Global Greening aims to bring positivity to the 70+ million people around the world with links to the island of Ireland,” Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affairs said. “Tourism Ireland wants to shine a green light in as many locations around the world as possible.”
