Even animals celebrate this day...
Thanks for the low down on the bum...
We celebrate St Patrick's day on the 17th of March because that was the day.........he died.
ah I bet you didn't know that, we actually celebrate his death!
Basically he was a Romano-British religious fanatic who arrived in Ireland (hired by the Romans), ordered the destruction of countless ancient stone religious monuments which he had smashed.
He ordered the burning of hundreds of books filled with Druidic knowledge (said to be over 800 in number).
He renamed all the sacred wells in Ireland after saints though they were sacred long before he arrived.
He outlawed many traditional Druidic practices saying they were evil.
He was so unoriginal that he took the leaf of the trefoil (shamrock) which had symbolic meaning to the Druids (the same meaning as the triskele) and he taught it represented the three aspects of deity to which the Irish probably said "we know we have been teaching that for a while around here"
His greatest achievement, he drove all the snakes out of Ireland,the snakes are no other then the Naddreds ie the Druids. He had hundreds of them rounded up and slaughtered like cattle.
So for destroying our history, our books, our ancient customs and religion it is only fitting that we celebrate the day the man died and not the day he was bornedit on 17-3-2014 by LUXUS because: (no reason given)
if I just cracked open a new bottle of whiskey about an hour and a half agao, can I keep celebrating St Paddies until the Sun comes up? that seems fair right? One bottle to get through St Paddies day and another to go with breakfast the following morn? Whiskey and a few hash browns and a couple of Egg Mcmuffins sound great right now, and should look stunning on the sidewalk a few hours from now !
