saint patrick was a christian missionary, who is now the most famous patron saint of ireland. i don’t have the patience to tell a long story, but march 17th is supposed to be a solemn and holy day in respect to his passing, as well as a celebration of ireland in general. … i don’t have to tell you the point has been lost. the worst part is that it’s not lost in an “i get presents and too much good food” sort of way, it’s lost in a “drunk teenagers crowding the streets before noon on a gorgeous and otherwise very pleasant saturday” sort of way.
i’m just going to close my eyes and wait till it’s over. by kl
