Happy St. Patrick’s Day! At our house, St. Pat’s, with its Guinness and green and general good cheer, trumps all the other things that happen today. I don’t really care for corned beef and cabbage, so I’ll be cooking lamb tonight – with potatoes, of course. Can’t celebrate the Irish without potatoes.
As it turns out, St. Patrick doesn’t get a day all to himself. Today is also St. Gertrude of Nivelles’ Day. She is a patron saint of gardeners and travelers and doesn’t she get screwed? Who wants to share their day with St. Patrick? Then again, she’s a saint, so she’s probably above that and doesn’t mind.
That is about all that happened today, though – no major events or birthdays of note. Probably because everybody’d too busy with their green beer to be productive. And rightly so!
