Don’t you think it’s time to reach into the cabinet, pull out your Guinness pint glass, wash it off and fill it with a cold beer? That’s what tens of thousands of people are doing right now in preparation for what is, in my humble opinion, the best holiday of the year… St. Patrick’s Day!
That said I bet you, like me, realize that St. Patrick’s Day is more than just green beer and drunkenness. The song “St. Patrick Never Drank” may not be historically accurate, but it reflects our understanding that St. Patrick's Day is more about the celebration of our Celtic culture than of debauchery. One of the chief points that I like to celebrate is the music.
