Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Fun facts about St. Patrick:

1. He was actually Welsh.

2. He banished all the snakes from Ireland.

3. Actually, according to Wikipedia (which is always right), there were no snakes and actually all he did was wipe out the older pagan traditions. (Not that well, I might add, seeing as my grandma is suuuuuper Catholic and still believes in banshees.)

4. He made it socially acceptable for me to get drunk on a Tuesday.

Thanks, St. Patrick!

UPDATE: While getting drunk on a Tuesday is certainly a good time, being hung-over on a Wednesday is not. FYI.

I am ALL ABOUT a snake banishing Saint! That is definitely a Sainthood worthy accomplishment.

Is it too early to drink green beer?

Catholic.org says he was born in Scotland and was held in captivity in Ireland for 20 years. I dont' really care where he was born as long as I get to drink Guiness all night.

I always thought it was Scotland too, but Wikipedia said Wales and Wikipedia never lies.
