    I always liked the statement shared with me by an Irish friend–“Everyone’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day!”

  • Dorian says:

    for just plain good fun, especially on St. Patrick’s day, you can’t beat the Irish!

  • Leanna Lindquist says:

    Every St. Patrick’s day my co-worker and friend Jane, who believed she was Irish, unfortunately Ancestry.com let the air out of those sails, brought a big basket of home made soda bread to work. We each chose a lovely round loaf wrapped in green Saran Wrap secured with wire covered in green shamrocks. It was so good served warm with butter and jam.

    Although I know they are not directly related, St. Patty’s day makes me think of the Irish and how they had to overcome the great potato famine. My understanding is that some chose to come to America, the land of opportunity, only to be met with animosity and signs of indicating that the Irish need not apply. Faced with this adversity, many ended up taking up jobs in the police and fire departments that were not real popular at the time. They have build a proud tradition of service and respect from a lack of acceptance at the time. Different people coming to America have found different ways to become part of this great country even though it has not always embraced them as warmly as we would like to think. Also, I like the green beer. 🙂

    Connecting with close friends that are Irish and celebrating at the dinner table with Corned Beef & Cabbage. Oh and a glass (or two) of good wine!

  • Marc Gabris says:

    I like that it’s an opportunity to celebrate with friends and family to commemorate the life of a great man – St. Patrick.

  • Melissa Carlson says:

    I like St. Patricks day because I get to show off my red hair. Gingers Unite!

  • Paula Howley says:

    I like it because I’m an Irish red-head but I don’t like it because I don’t drink anymore!

  • Barb says:

    Because any celebration is good! It is a time to get together with friends and family- to enjoy the people in our lives. Oh…and corned beef & cabbage, Jameson and Guiness 😉

  • Karen Melcher says:

    I love St. Paddy’s Day because of all the wonderful costumes and ingenuity that I get to see around our great city of Seattle. Also, my dad always said we had a little bit from a lot of different countries so it makes me feel good to think I might have a bit of the luck o’ the Irish in me. 😉

  • Rodger says:

    St Patrick’s is a great time reminds of the Irish gentlemen walking down the street peers into the window of a bar and notices a brawl going on…he promptly walks in taps one of the fighters on the shoulder and asks: is this a private fight or can anyone join

  • Steven Timmons says:

    Green is not my favorite color; however, on this one day of the year I love green. The St. Patrick’s day decorations make me smile and I love green beer.

  • carol sauceda says:

    I like St. Patrick’s Day for the traditional corned beef and cabbage. While I am not of Irish descent, my Mother would make this traditional dinner every year. Even when we were grown and working, most of us would make the extra effort to be a my Mom’s home. For the last 20 years, one of my sister’s has assumed the role of hosting Corned Beef dinner since her home is larger than my Mom’s. My husband and I missed it this year (it was this past weekend) and the traditions of wearing green, drinking Guinness, and Bailey’s Irish Cream. Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Avery!

  • Joe says:

    I like St Paddy’s Day because I can finally tell people about all the little green people following me around without sounding like I’m crazy.

    Because I’m NOT cray. They. Are. Following. Me.

  • Rajula Gupta says:

    Winning a speech contest is just like celebrating St. Patrick’s Day – everyone turns green with envy

  • Byron says:

    I like it because it celebrates green and two of my favorite things are green – frogs and money…

  • Himani Kumar says:

    I like St. Paddy’s Day because I feel that the leprechaun will one day find the hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow; the color green that will bring prosperity; the shamrock leaf that will bring good luck and last but not the least the Shamrock Shake at McDonald’s that will sweeten my mouth and that I remember I had four years ago!
