White House Fountains Green for Patrick's Day

The White House has gone green -- literally.

To celebrate St. Patrick's Day, the water in the fountains on the north and south lawns of the White House has been dyed green.

First Lady Michelle Obama came up with the idea, said spokeswoman Katie McCormick Lelyveld. She was inspired by the St. Patrick's Day celebrations in her hometown of Chicago, where the city dyes the river green, Lelyveld added.

Said Lelyveld, "It's a little piece of home for our new home."

She said it's the first time the water in the White House fountains has been dyed.
