I ate a lot of spinach last night. I can't wait to see my green poo. I generally poo at around 6:30am.

I will be doing one of three things tonight. Going to downtown Seal Beach and trying to hit all four pubs. Going to a pub in downtown long beach. Or going to my local pub.

Either way, I will be drinking green beer or black beer!

:D

I'm not Irish, so I won't be celebrating.

Nonetheless, I hope our Irish members have a splendid day.
That's the thing about America. We'll take any "holiday" and somehow make it all about us whether we're Irish or not. While I am, I am honestly cleaning my room. Maybe I'll go over and grab a beer somewhere though. /shrug

Our uni is going mad for it... all the nightclubs are doing fancy dress nights and our union will have Roy Walker as a guest!

Fun night all round, but I am half-Irish so I can still join in ;)

Fixed that for you.

Most in the US have no earthly idea what St. Patrick's Day actually celebrates.

It's the same with all the other Americanized holidays. See also: Mardi Gras and Cinco De Mayo.

As an Irish-American, I'm offended by this portrayal of St. Patrick's day as an excuse to drink. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go find my Jameson's for the morning coffee. :)

i tend not to celebrate holidays that deal with drinking, commercialization, or arbitrary love/gave thanks.


although I must say, cabbage does taste ok and corned beef (while very fatty and bad for your fitness) can be a delicious guilty pleasure.

Dont' be silly. Mardi Gras is all about beads and drinking, Cinco De Mayo is all about Mexican food and drinking, and St Paddy's day is just about drinking. :)

People were lining up at the black rose here in Boston at 6:00am for their celebration. :eek:

Although personally not Irish I am married to an Irishman so sort of count. We are going to the theatre to see an Irish play by an Irish playwright about Irish people, and whilst there will most likely partake of some Irish drinks.

I may even wear green and gold.
