St. Patrick’s Day—Notes on
We all like St. Patrick’s Day. St. Patrick was probably an ass hole. He supposedly ran the snakes out of Ireland, but there really never were any snakes there. He may have run the various pagan religions out, which is probably how he got to be a saint. He lived about the fifth century. There have been intense political struggles there during the last century. They also had the armed struggle of the IRA.
While most people celebrate with green shamrocks, the better symbol is the starry plough (see picture below).
