St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Bring out your green, orange, or blue!

Green - Catholic Irish
Orange - Protestant Irish
Blue - the liturgical color for St. Patrick (go figure).

Mark and I will be heading off to the Mucky Duck this afternoon for their celebration. Looking forward to it!

Current Mood: cheerfulcheerful
Current Music: "Dona Nobis Pacem" - Handel
Comments

That is indeed where the term Orangmen comes from - the Protesant fraternal organisation. Of course, not all Irish Protestants support their aims.

However, given St. Patrick is a Catholic saint I can't see many rallying to celebrate the day. Not in Ireland.
