Happy St Patricks Day
OK, I went to look up what St. Patrick’s Day really was...here’s how History.com defines it...
“St. Patrick's Day is celebrated on March 17, his religious feast day and the anniversary of his death in the fifth century. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over a thousand years. On St. Patrick's Day, which falls during the Christian season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. Lenten prohibitions against the consumption of meat were waived and people would dance, drink and feast—on the traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage.”
See! No where in there did it say, "Then whomever didn't don the festive Green, shall be pinched till they are black and blue." Nope! What I got out of it was...it’s time to PAR-TEY!
If you are Irish or just pretending to be Irish today, have fun, enjoy a Green Beverage, and if you’re going to be downtown watch out for JACK-fm’s Huge Leprechaun on the prowl.
Oh, and this classic Leprechaun story always makes me laugh….
