Don’t be afraid to show your Irish pride, You will not be alone. Be you a Gambler, a Pharaoh, or The Redeemer, for St Patrick’s day, We are all proud to be Irish.
You have to hand it to tourism Ireland for inviting all to the St Patrick’s day celebration.
Whether you lean to the left, are a squishy moderate, or a staunch conservative, all can agree that there is a special connection to our Irish heritage. A love for land that bore the saints, scholars, rebels, and heroes, that we celebrate on St Patricks Day.
Even Pesa is celebrating the Patron Saint of Ireland.
It is time to sing the praises of being connected to your Irish past, They are wearin the green in Serbia too.
So the next time some Irish know it all tells you you’re a plastic paddy for enjoying your St. Patricks day, tell them to stuff it. You are not alone. Besides the greening of the worlds iconic monuments, Dublin continues it’s week long celebration of Paddys day. Check out St. Patrick’s festival Dublin, there is still time to pop over to Ireland’s capital city. The “People’s Parade” is set to invite 8000 people to march in the Dublin St. Patrick’s day parade as well. Then there are the parades in Boston, New york, and Chicago.
Maybe learn an old Irish song, or at least find a cd or two and listen to some great Irish music. Favorite Irish music of mine include the classic Irish folk music of the Dubliners, Luke Kelly, Paddy Reilly.
Even better, listen to some good traditional Irish music, Paul Brady, Sharon Shannon, The Bothy Band, The Ivy Leaf.
Proud to be Irish, let me count the ways.

St Patricks day is my favorite holiday of the year. No one is obligated to do anything, you get to choose what festivities you like. So lighten up, enjoy the day, have a pint and strike a blow for freedom.
