Even though St. Patricks Day is a predominantly American holiday, it  has still gotta be one of my favorite reasons to get "Liquified".  It is said that St. Patricks day was created, not just to celebrate Irish American heritage, but to give the Irish Catholics an excuse to drink during Lent. The country of Ireland, for the most part, doesnt celebrate the holiday.  Chalk it up as a "good ol American" way of looking for reasons to get hammered. Whether or not you have Irish heritage, raise a glass to St. Patrick for getting "those mother f#!ing snakes off that mother f#!ing island" and as my Grandmother always said
"May your glass be ever full,
May the roof over your head be always strong,
And may you be in heaven
Half an hour before the devil knows you're dead"
