Happy St. Patrick’s Day! As some of you already know, my family is of Irish descent. Very heavy Irish descent, Black Irish to be specific. The Festival of Patrick is a day of religious observance back in Ireland. A day the Catholics not only reflect on the arrival of Christianity to Ireland, but a day to celebrate their heritage and remember the Trinity.
Though St. Patrick’s Day is not a legal holiday here in the United States, it would be false to say we don’t celebrate it. We drink alcohol, wear green, drink more alcohol, drink green beer, eat corn beef, eat cabbage, and then drink more alcohol. So let’s face it, it’s pretty much a drinking holiday here in America where everyone gets to be “Irish” and have some fun!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day Everyone! Whether you are Irish or not, celebrating in church or in a bar, here is a cheer to Ireland and St. Patrick!
