Happy Saint Patrick’s Day

Éireann go Brách!

Irish Flag

Well everyone agrees that he died on March 17th, but the year is subject to debate. This is his feast day on the Catholic calendar. Enjoy as you are wont.

Wikipedia has more on Saint Patrick’s Day, if you need more.

One amusing thing: The Irish patron saint was born a Scotsman.

Well, at least he was a Celt and not an Angle, Saxon, or Norman.

I expect to see lots of Irish flags, green-colored drinks, etc. today. Funny how that’s not a problem with tighty righties, but other people flying Mexican flags and sloshing margaritas around on May 5 is.

The real hoot is that more Anglos celebrate Cinco de Mayo than Mexicans. Outside of the Frontier and the state of Puebla, it is ignored.

You’re right. Heaven help us if a Congolese holiday had become popular …
