The wearin' o' the green beer all down your shirt.

Today's the day that we all talk with bad Irish accents, drink too much beer, and watch the office lech get away with blatant sexual harassment on anyone who forgot to wear green and is too timid to punch back.

For some reason we never celebrate on April 28th, which is the Feast of St. Seamus, the man who put the snakes in Ireland in the first place.

Actually I find it odd that the current practitioners of Druidism and Wicca seem to enjoy St Patrick's day as the "snakes" involved actually refers to teh practitioners of the old religion.

OTOH it is the best day to wear my Guiness green with envy t-shirt.

Does OD count as "green"?

I don't get the "Seamus" reference, other than that snakes never naturally lived in Ireland (since the Ice Age at least).

Perhaps Seamus put a snake in St. Patrick's bed.

. . . then of course there's those of us who're orange-men and are just waiting, clue by four in hand, for anyone of the green persuasion to even *think* of trying it . . .
