Yep, that's right. You'll be seeing that and a lot of shamrocks today, it's St. Patrick's Day. Hurray, a whole day to let my Irish blood run riot and drink my favourite beverage, beer.
Now of course in Ireland, it is a much more sober religious holiday. Sober, get it. I'll just wish them well and join in the North American shenanigans. But wait, it gets better.
I ran across this this morning in my perusal of all things on the interweb. I know, who knew there were health benefits? I'm down right giddy with excitement.
If I was on top of things, I'd have a pot of Irish stew simmering away with dumplings or boxty, would have some soda bread baked but hey, it's Saturday. I haven't even figured out what I'm having for lunch and I skipped breakfast all together. Dinner is hours away. But there will be beer. Healthy, delicious beer. All I have to do is figure out what the hell they mean by "responsible" consumption.
One thing is for sure, I'll be out and about. Shillelaugh in one hand and a pint in the other. I may even wear green. How ever you celebrate, have a Happy St. Patrick's Day.
