Tradition.

So it's St. Patrick's Day. I'm mostly going to ignore it. Because I'm nit-picky where mythology is concerned (and book-to-film adaptions - go figure! ;) and so I have problems with the whole public interpretation of the myth. Also because I don't like beer. And green beer is better left to theory. Ew.

On the other hand, St. Patrick's Day is the only really international Celtic holiday I can think of (even if some people claim it does perpetuate a negative stereotype of Celts which, if my family is any metre-stick, is not an altogether, completely, 100% inaccurate one ;), so on that count, more power to them.

It is also smolder's birthday, which is a Good Thing. Happy Birthday, smolder! Hope you have a good one.
