Unless you’ve been living under a rock – and if you have Internet access, I assume not – you’re quite aware of the festivities that this beautiful holiday brings. Green beer and debauchery seem to sit perfectly hand in hand with St. Patrick’s Day, a celebration of all things Irish and an excuse for many – not myself, however, as I’m legitimately of Irish descent – to pretend their family tree has a branch or two stemming from the best heritage known to mankind.
I’ve attended quite a few St. Patty’s celebrations in my day – that makes me sound old, but I’m not, I swear – and although 2009 brings a tamer year than the last several, I’m hoping to make the best of it. After all, I am rocking a brand new holiday tee* in addition to green shoes. Clearly I’m perfectly equipped for this evening’s festivities.
I might’ve missed the fourth largest St. Patty’s parade in the country this past Saturday in Scranton – held annually and a pretty big deal – as well as Penn State’s version, “State Patty’s Day” – born out of the a Nittany Lion desire to celebrate despite missing the holiday each year due to Spring Break – but I’m hoping to make up for that this evening.
So drink a pint of Guinness whether you are Irish or not, wear your classiest green tee and have a great St. Patty’s Day everyone!
* I have a slight addiction to Irish attire. Last year I bought three tee-shirts and this year I bought another to add to my already abundant collection that includes at least one hoodie and the glittery, camoflauge pair of Roos adorning my feet this moment.
