    love it hate it.. dont care about it?

    im not a drinker, so it never made any sense to me.

    most people dont know who st patrick was, what he did.. all they know is lets go drink.

    i hate drunks.. so not my thing. i was invited to a party tonight and did not go.. but if i had felt better perhaps i would have gone.

    do u like it, tell us why

    My wife is of Irish decent but we don't make a big deal of it. It's just the only day of the year I know we're having corned beef and cabbage for supper. Certainly never used it as an excuse to get drunk. Who needs an excuse?

    I may wrong, but I suspect that honoring St. Patrick originated as anything but the whimsical celebration that it ended up being today. He wasn't a gregarious little fellow in green searching for the pot o' gold ~ he brought Catholicism to Ireland. But the Irish love a reason to celebrate, so in time it became an occasional to drink together and have a jolly ol' time.

    So I'd say that I like it. I display my St. Patrick stuff and wear green, sometimes even go watch the parade through my town (did not do it this year). Portland has a big 3-day festival downtown, and I would love to go there and watch the entertainment. But it's very crowded and my husband has no interest. Portland is also home of the microbrews, but I don't drink much beer anymore.
