Nice to see an actual Irishman…

…hate St. Patrick’s Day almost as much as I do.  And I consider myself perfectly entitled to do so, seeing as I am almost completely of Irish descent.

But we’ve had that rant before.

    My mother–born and raised in Belfast–about St. Patrick’s Day: “Buncha bloody amateurs.” Yeah, hard to complain about much when answered with, “Ach, I know . . . I remember when the Nazis were bombing my neighborhood.”

    Gods we have to go with the Green Beer nonsense again? Beer should never ever be Green. If it is you did Wrong!

  • Brian Swisher says:

    Let Bacchus’ sons be not dismay’d
    Come join with me and show me a way
    Come booze and sing and lend your aid
    And help me with the chorus:
    Instead of spa, we’ll drink brown ale
    And pay no reck’ning on the nail
    No man for debt shall go to jail
    From Garryowen in glory.

    My girlfriend was born on St. Patrick’s Day, so it’s become an extra celebration for me.
    But looking at the list, I do none of those things. I wear some green and wish people a happy and safe St. Patrick’s Day, but that’s about it (I’m also English by desent and I totally agree with point three about the Troubles). I celebrate Cinco De Mayo in pretty much the same way.

    @ Catseye, there is Green Rooster beer. It is naturally green. As for St Patrick’s day, being an Irish dancer I never have a chance to sit at a bar and get pissed drunk. It always reminds me of New Years eve with a drinking with amateurs event. The one advantage of having at least 6 shows to do, you keep moving and if the crowd is ugly you are gone before anything bad happens.
