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.
