Thread Name: Half way to St. Patrick's Day party
Subject: RE: Half way to St. Patrick's Day party
My brother had to do a report on good ol' St. Paddy this past year and Joe's correct in that he was from what is now England. I'm not sure about the part of not liking the Irish; his report wasn't that in depth since he is only in 7th grade. I always want to have a half-way to 3-17 party, but it never happens. I've heard of some cities that want to have their St. Patrick's Day parades in September or inside b/c it always rains when they try to celebrate. I think it's kind of fitting, actually.
