Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

And a happy Saint Patrick's Day to you, good sir (or ma'am)! Click through for a little history. Here are some quick facts:
  • Saint Patrick's Day is a Catholic feast day which celebrates Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland
  • Saint Patrick's Day was brought to America by Irish-American immigrants.
  • The first civic and public celebration of Saint Patrick's Day in the 13 colonies took place in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1737
I hope that this Saint Paddy's Day brings you good cheer. Here's an Irish cheer to share with your friends as you raise a pint of Guinness tonight:
May those who love us,
Love us.
And those who do not love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May He turn their ankles,
So we'll know them by their limping.

Go bhfana í ngrá linn,
Iad siúd atá í ngrá linn.
Iad siúd nach bhfuil,
Go gcasa Dia a gcroíthe.
Agus muna gcasann Sé a gcroíthe
Go gcasa Sé caol na coise acu
Go n-aithneoimid iad as a mbacadaíl.
Éireann go Brách!
