Happy St Patrick’s day from all your friends on the Emerald Isle.
The 17th March is said to be that of St. Patrick's death and is a national holiday in Ireland. But as is typical of the Irish, it is a case of any excuse is good enough for a good party.
While for some St. Patrick's Day still has religious connotations, for most it is a day to “let your hair down” (if you still have the stuff) and go a little bit crazy or at least do something different.
But here is a bit to the worst trivia ever.
St Paddy himself was a big fan of blue and not green.
Perhaps the green theme for St Pat’s day stems from how many of us look after a couple or more Guinness, Bushmills, Baileys, Jameson, Irish Coffee, Smithwicks, Middleton, Tullamore Dew, Galway Hookers, and White Gypsy. That would be of course before a massive feed of bacon, corned beef and cabbage.
So no matter what you do on the great day that March 17th is, we really hope you have a good one. We will raise a glass to all our friends at least a couple of times before noon. As for the afternoon, our intentions will be good at least.
