Irish Eyes Are Smiling

Is there anything more St. Patrick's Day appropriate than a pub or me drinking a Guinness at said pub?

Happy St. Patrick's Day! This is one of my favorite holidays, though not for the reason most people like it. 
For me, St. Patrick's Day is another 'over-the-top' holiday courtesy of my Dad. Think: Marathon movie watching of Rudy, Angela's Ashes, Darby O'Gill and the Little People. Picture: Pots of potato soup and bubbling corned beef and cabbage (now gone, alas, as we don't eat meat) and terrible Irish accents ringing out throughout the house. (Faith and Begorrah! Top o' the morning' to ya lads! Stay out of me pot o' gold!) And everyone wearing the green. 
However you celebrate, whether by cracking open a pint or two (or 3 or 4) or drinking the nastiest green beer possible, have a grand day.
