Saints preserve us! March 17th tis St. Patrick's Day, a time for the Irish to celebrate their love of Saint Patrick. It celebrates the day Saint Patrick brought Christianity to Ireland and cast out all the snakes.
So raise yourself a pint lads and lassies, and may the road rise up to meet you. (Don't Drive Drunk!)
Legend has it that Patrick chased all the snakes out of Ireland. But, really, has anyone ever heard of a snake in Ireland?
