ONE DOWN, ANOTHER COMING UP


V

alentine's Day is gone for another year. Some people feel depressed because they didn't have a valentine this year, and some feel thrilled that they received something from someone special in their life. However, now that it's over let's get right down to business!

What am I talking about? I'm talking about the upcoming biggest holiday of the year... Saint Patrick's Day! Ok, ok, maybe not the biggest but close to it. Some of my best parties have been St. Patrick Day parties.

Ok, I admit there have been times when I've enjoyed Irish wakes a lot more, where the body is in the living room in repose and the mourners are all in the kitchen getting soused and singing Irish songs. Maybe someday I'll blog about the Irish wake I was attending and we were all arrested for drunkenness disorder and the local priest had to come and bail us out of jail so we could attend the funeral.

Anyway back to the subject matter... will you be celebrating this year? Do you just stay at home because your drinking days are long gone? The one day a year when everyone you meet is Irish. One year I met a girl named Chin from Pei-Ching, China who was dressed to the nines in her Irish best. I swear she looked more Irish than my own grandmother who came from County Down.

And no offense meant but there is no one more fun than a good old fashioned Irish Catholic girl out on the night on St. Patty's Day.... but that can be a whole 'nother article.
