I have a rather ambiguous relationship with Paddy’s day.

One, nobody goes all in on it back home like they do here.

Irish people are actually a bit unsure what to after the mass and parade.

And so kind of wander in bovine fashion to the pub afterwards.

Two, it feels like a green halloween.

An excuse to get drunk.

Something that is redundant in Ireland.

The Irish don’t drink a lot because we like to drink. That would be all the eastern European countries ;-)

The Irish drink noticeably more because the Irish like to talk noticeably more too.

We have a bit of a flair for the dramatic.

And, like our Italian cousins, can be a tad emotional.

Which is why this is the best Paddy’s day thing ever.

It’s true!
