St. Patrick's Day

I will admit that I have no idea what St. Patrick's Day is about. You're supposed to wear green, but I don't know why. In school, I pretty much wore something green just so stupid kids wouldn't pinch or hit me. As an adult, I don't really do the "wear green" thing. "But everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's Day!" Ummm, no, I'm not. I like some Irish stuff, like their Dubliner cheese which is pretty yummy, and I love some other Irish stuff - but that doesn't make me Irish any more than loving sushi makes me Japanese. As far as I can tell, most people use St. Patrick's Day as an excuse to get totally wasted, on green beer no less. I'm not a fan of beer anyway, but green beer? Blech.

But, as usual, Google has a cool themed logo.

If you see a leprechaun today - wave hi to him.

St. Patrick's Day celebrates the fact that St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland. However, there have never been any snakes in Ireland and the snakes referred to are actually the Druids and Pagans that St. Patrick had killed so that everyone would convert to Christianity. I have never been a fan of St. Patrick's Day so I'm not wearing green. Happy Tuesday. :)
