Anyone here celebrate this day with wine or something?
It's St. Patrick's Day tomorrow, so it's a good excuse to have a two-days celebration ;-)

I'll take a beer for Urho. Cheers!


In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

I'll have a beer or two....by then, I will be chanting "Grasshopper, grasshopper, go away"...(in my case headache is synonymous with grasshopper).

When I was a kid in Australia Saint Patrick's day was Huge! Every Catholic school in the city would march through the streets, The Archbishop would make a speech, there were banners and decorations all down the streets. And afterwards there'd be street parties - and some of the nuns would even smile!

Now I find in Brighton it's a Huge non-event. Except for every pub and club in town!

In a way I guess that's very (stereotypical) Irish...if you don't drink, you don't celebrate!
