St. Patrick, Rock Star of Saints

St. Patrick's Day, the day everyone wants to be Irish.

Why is that?  Let's take a brief examination:

 This is what the Irish government has to say about St. Patrick's Day:

-Offer a national festival that ranks amongst all of the greatest celebrations in the world and promote excitement throughout Ireland via innovation, creativity, grassroots involvement, and marketing activity.

 

Oooookay.

 

-Provide the opportunity and motivation for people of Irish descent, (and those who sometimes wish they were Irish) to attend and join in the imaginative and expressive celebrations.


Yes.  Expressive celebrations.  Indeed.



-Project, internationally, an accurate image of Ireland as a creative, professional and sophisticated country with wide appeal.


Ireland IS gorgeous, but...
 

Let's be honest, here.

St. Patrick was a great guy.  He brought Christianity to Ireland and drove out all the snakes.  But everyone knows that people love St. Patrick's Day because it is the only holiday with this  clear goal:

 

intoxication.

 

And THAT is why everyone wants to be Irish on St. Patrick's Day.



So party like a rock star!
