Kiss Me, I'm Irish!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I just love this holiday!
It's not because I'm Irish, although I am.
It's not because I'm proud of my Irish heritage and all the things Irish people have accomplished, although I'm that, too.
Here's the real reason why I love it so much:
You just have to love a holiday that doesn't require you to do any more than wear green and possibly a shamrock pin or something.
Maybe you could have a bowl of Lucky Charms for breakfast, make some corned beef and cabbage for dinner, and imbibe some green beer at Happy Hour at Mick O'Shea's.
If your feeling kind of whimsical, you could wear a green plastic derby hat, or a pin that says "Kiss me, I'm Irish!"
That's it.
No presents to buy, no cards or flowers to send, no complicated rituals to perform, and you don't have to string your house with lights, put up a tree, or sing carols.
Plus, you have (yet another) excuse to drink.
