Happy St. Patrick's Day

One of the biggest drinking Holidays of the year hits a Friday, watch yourself on the roads. Here is a classic to kick off the day>

When Irish eyes are smiling
Sure, 'tis like the morn in Spring
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing
When Irish hearts are happy
All the world seems bright and gay
And when Irish eyes are smiling
Sure, they steal your heart away


Éirinn go Brách!

Where there ever a point to this 'holiday' beyond drinking yourself to death?

Well, if you're actually Irish, it may include a trip to Church, a place like the beautiful St. Colman on the near West Side of Cleveland (http://songsandstories.net/myblog/wp...s-interior.jpg), attendance at a big parade (in Cleveland, e.g.), and getting together with family in the afternoon. It may also include a couple of pints.

Plenty of non-Irish families do this as well.

For all you Germans in Cincinnati...

I'm in a pub in Galway and the bartender is complaining about the Germans. "What's wrong with the Germans" I ask. He says ...."two Germans come in here...they share a pint of Guinness!" Say no more.

Not to be that guy, but with all the substance abuse that we have today, to have a holiday dedicated to drinking just does not seem right. It's sad that we as a society continue to make the same mistakes over and over and over. Wonder how many college girls will get plastered this weekend, have sex with whomever, regret it, then claim sexual assault or rape? It's a dirty little secret of most of our colleges, who have to put up a front that they have a safe campus. Enjoy everyone!

St. Patrick's day isn't a holiday. And kids in college are going to get drunk and make questionable decisions every weekend.

Yeah, let's cancel St. Patricks day because kids make dumb decisions.

So let's do away with New Year's Eve and birthday celebrations for people over the age of 18

If we quit having birthdays celebrations does that mean I will quit getting older? If not I think I want to keep celebrating, if it is OK?

This^

St. Patrick's Day in America has been hijacked by beer companies.

Go to any bar and you'll find a bunch of non-Irish drinking and the most proclaimed Irish guy in the bar is actually Scottish.

Is fearr Gaeilge briste, ná Béarla clíste.

Slainte.

4th of July must be shut down because children sometimes burn their hands while lighting bottle rockets. From now we'll jump straight from July 3rd to July 5th and then add an extra day to February.
