» It’s named for a patron Saint who was a religious leader.
» It is a Catholic Holiday.
» It celebrates the superstition of luck.
» It celebrates believing in mythical creatures (whose myth also reinforces capitalism).
» Green is so not my color.
Here are reasons I do like St. Patrick’s Day:
» Green is so my blog’s color.
» Any excuse to include rainbows is a good one.
» Despite the clues in its name, most people forget it’s named after a saint.
» In US celebrations, there are no references to the religion behind the holiday.
» Did I mention there is Irish blood flowing through these veins?
» The primary celebration of the event is drinking and having a good time.
I actually think that if the Jews had led more crusades, we’d commit to the same level of celebration for Purim.
Be safe and have a good time everybody!!
