Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Boston CelticsSo what exactly is the deal with St. Patrick’s Day this year?

It’s 17th March, so we should all be drinking a Guinness or a glass of Whiskey – be it Jameson’s, Powers, Black Bush, Green Spot (my fave) or whatever is your preference.
Just make sure it includes the ‘e’

So this year I’ve heard from at least two sources now that Paddy’s day got moved to the 15th because this week is Holy Week and you cannot have a saints day in Holy Week?

I don’t know enough about this Catholic Church stuff, and those celts from the home country I’ve asked don’t seem any wiser than I, which is probably just testament to their preference for the craic over the church.

So we’ve decided that while we’ll continue to celebrate today as tradition dictates, we just regret that we missed a chance to celebrate on Friday too…

Slàinte!
