Happy St. Patrick’s Day

17 Mar

St. Patrick’s Day is a minor holiday to the rest of the world, but we Americans like to celebrate the heck out of it. Some might say it is due to the large number of Irish immigrants who came to the US, others might say something about how St. Patrick *mumble mumble* snakes in Ireland, but realistically, it is a day to celebrate Guinness, Bailey’s, green beer, and corned beef and colcannon.

I hope you all are having a blast celebrating the death of St. Patrick, a very nice Welsh boy who spent six years as a slave, found God, and brought the Holy Trinity to Ireland with as many green beers as you wish. Also, I think you all will enjoy what I believe to be the definitive rendition of the classic Irish folk song, “Danny Boy”.
