For God and Saint Patrick

love this day.

On days like this, it's often difficult to know what to say without offending somebody. The welt marks left on every community by various episodes in Ireland's history mean that on days like Saint Patrick's, you're bound to get somebody's back up no matter what you say.

But, for me personally, that says a lot more about the people you're offending rather than anything about Saint Patrick or Ireland. So I hope everyone reading this has a glorious Saint Patrick's Day and especially to all the Irish, of whatever denomination or political allegiance, I hope this year we have a Feast of Saint Patrick that brings you joy, good luck and merriment, in equal measure. And Guinness, in even great measure. 

Happy Saint Patrick's Day, everybody! 


  1. Yes, indeed, Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

  2. Happy St. Paddy's day to my favorite Irish friend!
