St Patrick’s Day
This is of course the day when everyone is Irish and many partake in green beer.
This evening I joined some friends at the bar for the birthday party of our friend James. Later in the evening someone put on some so called Irish music, by Flogging Molly, the sort that was enough to cause a good Irishman to consider defecting to the six counties.
Next year I am going to have to burn a CD with some quality (and authentic) Irish drinking songs... you know
Seven Drunken Nights
Beer, Beer, Beer
Hell, I’d even be up for some Whiskey In The Jar (non Metallica)
Some Corrs would also be nice and appropriate, even if non-drinking related.
But then, St. Patrick’s Day isn’t about drinking, it’s about the St. Patrick, who drove the snakes from Ireland. Legend has it he said: "All snakes who wish to remain in Ireland will please raise their right hands."
Before closing, I would like to leave you with an old Irish blessing:
May those who love us, love us
And those who don't love us,
May God turn their hearts
And if he can't turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles
So we will know them by their limping!
