Happy St. Patrick's Day, all!
Husband and I are trying to think of someplace to go for dinner tonight that won't be packed to the ceiling with drinking revellers. Perhaps Chinese or Greek-- as long as they don't have a bar. I do not understand what it is about green food colouring that supposedly makes American beer more appealing.

Maybe, but if so then why is it in English? There's no direct translation for it either. I honestly think it's Irish-American. Like corned beef!

You mean this?

Must say I've seen a lot of those, and I've never heard Lucky the Leprechaun say that.

In truth, and I know you don't want to hear this, I think it may actually be a traditional Irish phrase, if perhaps not often spoken these days.

Oh yeah? I seem to recall you cringing in pain at my attempts at an Irsih accent.



I meant the saying. Isn't it out of a cereal ad or something like that?

St. Patrick's Day is huge at my school... which doesn't really make sense because we place a lot of emphasis on our Scottish heritage (we all have tams, our sports team are called the Gaels, we have a highland dancing team and our mascot wears a kilt). I guess it's just an excuse to drink at 11 in the morning. It's one of the biggest party days of the year, but I couldn't enjoy the festivities this time. I had a term paper due yesterday so I spent all of the 17th in the library. Walking home from that night wasn't fun - I live on one of the main streets in the student housing area so I had to walk through half a kilometer of parties.

Savannah has one of the largest St Pat's celebrations in the country. Luckilly, Savannah is located on a bluff that overlooks the river. This one area where a lot of bars are located. 'Tis a convenient situation, as the people who go to party on River Street and overdo it are usually unable to make it back up the hill to the rest of the historic district. They may even fall into the river. Unfortunately, there are also plenty of drinking establishments above the riverfront. Savannah does know how to party, and they do it with a vengeance. I cannot even begin to imagine what St Pat's must be like-- and I've been there during Oktoberfest. Savannah is also known as America's most haunted city. Methinks there may be a connection between the hauntings and the partying....

I spent Paddy's Day with friends and had a great time. I wore black, avoided the parade, ate pizza, and didn't drink. So probably not very traditional, but still enjoyable!

I'd love to go to America for St. Patrick's Day. It sounds mental.

One thing I miss about America is St Patrick's Day. It's not that big here.

Lol! Good question. I never drink our mass produced American beer. Luckily, the advent of micro-brewers in the last couple of dacades has saved American beer from complete ignominy. Many of these are wonderful - and they're never green.
