A happy St. Patrick's day one and all from Joni
It is 28 years ago, to the day, I passed my driving test at the first attempt. In my Dad's green car, Dad being Irish. It made his day
Happy Paddy's day all
Roll up, roll up! Wait for Joni's next post: "Happy Easter everyone on Cyclechat"
Surely St P's Day only has any relevance if you're Irish?
Its relevant also if your not Irish but living there, it meant you get another holiday
Or a pub owner...went past several around here advertising "St Patrick's Day weekend"
OK, I'll force myself to drink a pint of Guinness!
i've no irish blood so i'll pass on this one. but have a good time, those of you with a connection to the emerald isle
Slowly losing touch with my roots but it was a BIG THING when we were kids . Both the parents came over from Ireland in 1956 (they met and married here) and we used to wear a big cardboard harp to school on St Paddy's day, and the rellies used to send over a squidgy envelope full of shamrock to pin on our school jumper, under that harp.... (late 60s, early 70s)
Yoy come over here, taking our jobs, bla bla bla..........
it gives us english an excuse to get hammered! well another one! I think we celebrate st patricks day more than st georges because it soo associated with alcohol, and celebrating St Georges Day = racism now
Happy St.Pat's Day!...I normally fly an Irish Tricolor on the back of my saddle bag on this day, but my wrist is bust so not riding yet!
my other half is half irish so i may have half a Guinness tonight
