Happy St. Patrick's Day

The Catholic Church and the Government of Ireland insist that this past Saturday was St. Patrick's Day (one of the Church's rules is that no other feast days are to be celebrated during the week leading up to Easter). To the rest of the world, however, March 17 will always be St. Patrick's Day.

And then there are folks like me who simply argue that this means we have two St. Patrick's Days in 2008.

Chick's Bar and the Tipperary Pub each seem to be doing a brisk business. I invite everyone to log off their respective computers and go have a beer.
