Having been born on in Galway, Ireland some 27 years ago I tend to to have a fondness for St. Patrick’s Day. But since my last day in Ireland was also some 27 years ago there is a disconnect and I have to admit I’m more American than I am Irish. Still, it bothers me that most of my current countrymen think the holiday is about kissing and drinking when it started as a religious holiday. Well, we are the people that co-opted Mexico’s (very, very) minor holiday of Cinco de Mayo as an excuse to drink. How much time will pass before the major activity on Christmas is a pub crawl?
*sigh* It was with this in mind that I debated making a Topless Tuesday St. Patrick’s Day photo. I tried several outfits and none quite worked. Then I saw a notice about a nice “Irish Devil” jacket from Rachel Swallows Creations (L$49 for a limited time at SLurl) and thought “If I’m going to Hell for this I might as well have shamrocks made of skulls on my clothes. So I did two photos:
So Happy Topless Tuesday and Happy St. Patrick’s Day. No matter how you celebrate, remember that it is a day for fun and responsible revelry (your Lenten obligations are lifted for the day, after all).
