Green Beer Day

Today is St. Patrick's Day. It is an annual feast day which celebrates Saint Patrick (circa AD 385–461,) one of the patron saints of Ireland, and is generally celebrated on March 17. The day is the national holiday of Ireland. It is a bank holiday in Northern Ireland and a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland and Montserrat. That doesn't prevent Canada, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand and especially the United States to chip in for the beer drinking celebration. It is widely celebrated although not an official holiday. You want proof? Look at the photo showing the crowd lining up for beer tonight. It's green day!
