Today is St Patrick’s day. I am ashamed to say that I totally forgot. Luckily I have green bits on my top, so I’m not feeling too jinxed. The thing which surprised me is that not a single person remembered. For the first year ever, there was no hitting, or pinching, or any other general form of meaningless assault. Also, I’ve not seen a single person downing Guinness. It’s quite nice really. However, in the spirit of the day, I have turned to Wikipedia to explain St Paddy’s to those not in the know.
Definitions of St Patrick’s Day on the Web:
- Saint Patrick’s Day (Lá Fhéile Pádraig) is an annual feast day that celebrates Saint Patrick (circa AD 387–493), the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland, and is generally celebrated on 17 March.
There we are then. Happy St Paddy’s Day! And of course not forgetting Happy Birthday to my good friend Jenny. Who is definitely more important than St Patrick.
