There’s something uplifting about the month of March. In the Northern hemisphere, the dark and cold times are over, and spring is just about in the air. The promise of better times seems just around the corner, and right in the middle of it, we have an excuse to get blindingly drunk in the name of celebrating the Emerald Isle.
St. Patrick’s Day isn’t just a holiday, it’s become one of the things that many non-Irish people most associate with the country. Looking from the outside in, it can seem kind of odd that so many of us get hopped up on leprechauns and the color green. The stereotypes don’t always help, either.
Is it bad that the plight of the Irish people has been reduced to one day of international debauchery? Probably! However, that’s no reason not to enjoy a fine pint of Guinness, and settle down with this offering of seasonal memes.
