Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to my blog-readers, with love from a part-Irish, part-Luxembourgian, part-a-lot-of-other-stuff blogger.   (She maintains that it’s a terrible shame no one walks around on 09 June saying, “Kiss me; I’m Luxembourgian.”)

  1. An friend of mine who is mixed Irish/French has a St. Patrick Day t-shirt that reads, “Kiss me, I’m Irish! (Use tongue, I’m also French)”

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you too, from an Irish/Czech/mutt.

  2. Thank you. :)

    I like the t-shirt. As Pat will also tell you, it gives women a good opportunity to evaluate the MHCs of the Irish/French lad in question.

  3. MHCs?

  4. And as an advance quid pro quo for the translation of the acronym, here’s a serious Canadian law blog falling for St Patrick’s Day silliness too:

  5. Somehow I always manage to not notice St. Patrick’s Day, though I have a friend who says the pope moved it or something so it wouldn’t fall on Holy Week…

    anyhoot, Happy Saint Pat’s Day

  6. Eoin,

    Explanation is here. Thank you for the link.

    W&F,

    Yes, I heard that St. Patrick’s Day was celebrated last week. Sunday was Palm Sunday. (Actually, Eoin could tell you more about that, if he is so inclined.)

  7. Happy Easter friend!

  8. I’m not sure that I can add anything more about the Catholic Church moving the religious observance of St Patrick’s Day to Saturday 15 March so that it doesn’t fall in the week between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday, but even in formerly holy Catholic Ireland, the secular observance remained on Monday 17 March. By way of recompense for my abject failure to be of use in that respect, enjoy this muppets’ clip (via YouTube). I am sure you get the song, but to get the parody of the arran sweaters, spend some time in the company of the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem (via YouTube).
