YEEEEEEEET! It’s my favorite national holiday. I hold this above Christmas, the 4th of July, and Labor Day.  The colors green and red, delicious beer that will turn your poop green, and of course, March Madness Friday to make it even more glorious.

I know some hardcore hipster Irishmen turn their noses up at this holiday, but I embrace it like a black guy embracing Kwanza. You gotta start at 7am, we call it, “Drinking with the Nurses!” The overnight nurse crews are just getting off of a hard nights work and want to cut loose.

Wearing an article of clothing that’s the color green actually dates all the way back to a story written of Saint Patrick in 1726. Saint Patrick was known for wearing green and to use shamrocks to represent the Holy Trinity!

St. Patrick’s Day is also known as the The Feast of St. Patrick! The day honors the death of Saint Patrick and is greatly recognized by the Catholic Church. A great feast tradition is cornbeef and cabbage, where it’s sold all over the US at various bars and restaurants on St. Patrick’s Day!

It’s greatly celebrated in Great Britain, United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and even Argentina.

Follow me on twitter and I’ll post updates of my daily holiday adventure starting with the “Drinking of the Nurses!” early in the morning, I might even post a YouTube video or six depending on how heavily the beer is flowing. I’ll be surprised if I last past 3:00pm.
