People still say “everybody’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.” Not that most people are really interested in whether or not their forbearers actually came from the emerald isle. We all just want to be part of the celebration.
The touch of the Irish positively spans the country with parades from New York to Louisiana. In Chicago, the river runs green for the day and everywhere people drink a lot of green beer.
Don’t forget that touch of green. Green socks or a green tie put people in the spirit.
And what would good old St. Pat think of the various revelry and green-wearing? Being a pretty serious type himself, he might be a little shocked by some of the partying. On the other hand, he did preach on love for one’s fellow man and would approve of the togetherness.
