Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I hope that the Luck of the Irish befalls on every one of you on this happiest of holidays.
You know, I’m not Irish, and I really don’t know much about St. Patrick’s Day, but I always have such a good time on this particular holiday. Not because it’s an excuse to get a few beers in me, or drink/eat/wear green stuff.. More likely it’s because I enjoy listening to bands like, Drop Kick Murphys or Flogging Molly and watching other non-Irish folk act like that…
Being from the Boston area, St. Patrick’s day was always a huge deal – no matter what day of the week it fell upon. I remember taking a day off (I think it was a Tuesday) to go see the parade and get pretty lit… You should have seen the crowds out there! It could be 60 degrees, or 40, and it wouldn’t matter. The streets would be lined with folks donning their green, yards of emerald beer in one hand, and some sort of noisemaker in the other… It was fantastic. It didn’t hurt that there were (still are) Irish pubs and bars and clubs *all* over the place, so stumbling from one to the next was never very hard.
It was always a great time, and you got to meet lots of people that you normally wouldn’t, and sometimes see people you had lost touch with. So, with that all said, I hope that all of you have a Wonderful St. Patty’s Day. Stay Safe and Erin go Bragh!!
