Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?

Just a pet peeve but corned beef and cabbage isn’t Irish food. Salmon, pork or lamb would be closer. These days pizza would even be a better match.
@redredred Pizza, really?

@SW-User in Dublin today I’ll bet there are more pizzerias than delis serving corned beef.
@redredred Lol, ok I thought you meant in the U.S.

It's complicated.

St. Patrick's signature color was blue. Therefore, I wear green in memory of the druids he murdered.

St. Patrick considered pagan mythology to be of the devil. Therefore, I decorate with leprechauns.

In other words, I enjoy the trappings of the holiday, because he would have hated them.

Only when my Irish friends are in town
Nah. I used to drink a bottle of whiskey on St Patricks day but I had to abandon that tradition 🥲

@Darksideinthenight2 Even in the trenches of the first World War they celebrated Christmas. American troops in Iraq, and Afghanistan celebrated Thanksgiving.
I wonder if they were concerned about inflation, or the price of gas.
