Green Is In Today

As most of you know by now…today is St. Patrick’s Day.  A day when the “wearing of green” is the color to wear, least you be pinched affectionately; however some like to carry this a bit too far.

Towns and cities all over the world celebrate this religious holiday and San Antonio is right up there with the best.  On Saturday there was the St. Patrick’s Day parade and then we dye our San Antonio river a shamrock green. 

There are restaurants offering their Irish dishes such as corned beef and cabbage with lots of green beer to wash it down.  St. Patricks Day is one of the leading days for consumption of alcohol in the United States, and is typically one of the busiest days of the year for bars and restaurants.  Who would have thought?

This celebration has transformed itself significantly throughtout the years when Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official feast day in the early 17th century, and has gradually become a celebration of Irish culture in general.

I wonder what St. Patrick would think of how this day is celebrated today and how the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, which is is said he used to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish, and the wearing and display of shamrocks and shamrock-inspired designs have become a ubiquitous feature of the day.

Hears to St. Patrick and to the Luck of the Irish!  Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
