Irish Blessings

Friday, April 10, 2009
Ever stop and wonder if St Paddy’s Day is about more than just getting drunk? Well guess what, it is … I have comprised a guide for my readers to enjoy. If you find it’s not entertaining you, drink 3 more beer and come back to read it again..

What we do now:

Our generation tends to sleep in until noon, skip breakfast and start catching a buzz by 2:00 pm. Eventually, we stop stumbling just enough to paint ourselves green and call a cab to the local pub… Somehow, everyone who is out on the 17th is suddenly Irish lol… something I have always gotten a kick out of… I’m waiting to see if everyone claims to be a rabbit by next Easter. Ok, getting off track here ….

St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March 17, his religious feast day and the anniversary of his death in the fifth century. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over a thousand years.On St. Patrick’s Day, which falls during the Christian season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. Lenten prohibitions against the consumption of meat were waived and people would dance, drink, and feast—on the traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage.
