St. Patrick’s Day


I hate greeting card holidays.  Valentine’s Day is a scam to sell chocolate.  Mother’s Day, although well meaning, is perpetuated by the floral industry.  Father’s Day is propped up by the grill industry.  They are all fake special days designed to pick our pockets.  
St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday I can support.  It’s all about the songs.  In every respectable pub, revelers will be pounding the bar with their green beer.  The exact same songs will be sung by voices in old folks homes, schools, bars, and my house. A holiday with such a strong emphasis on musical tradition is one worth celebrating.  Regardless of your heritage, take some time to share a dirty limerick today.
