count down to st patrick’s day

The bottom line facts…

St Patrick’s Day has become a significant holiday since I’ve been in Australia due to my amount of Irish mates here and overseas (shout out to Cathal!).

I never really understood celebrating St Patrick’s Day until I started rolling with the Irish.

I end up hearing pub songs played by various Irish cult members throughout the year so we can sing. And in case you don’t recall, I’m not a singer... St Patrick’s Day is the only time where not singing seems nearly as rude as not drinking Jameson and Guinness… and Kilkenny.

A friend in Ireland once told me he met some Aussies and had no prior knowledge of their drinking skills… Six more sleeps ’til the festivities commence!

St Patrick’s Day also holds special meaning to me as an unconverted pagan.

… and I’m glad he got rid of the snakes too.
