Saint Patrick

We celebrate Saint Patrick’s day March 17th.    March 17th was the date of the Irish Patron Saint’s death in 461.     Historians have written that he was a missionary in Ireland during the fifth century.   It’s reported that Ireland observes March 17th with solemnity and reverence contrasted with our celebrations in the United States. Perhaps you know some people who use the Saint’s death day as a reason to drink an excessive amount of alcoholic beverages.   Wonder what Saint Patrick would think about that?

    I celebrate with One Green Beer and the corn-beef sandwich. and I dress in green. Get out of the bar early enough that I don’t need to suffer drunks.
