Happy Day That Is Not Saint Patrick's Day

Ireland, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Montserrat may be officially observing Saint Patrick's Day along with Irish and Irish-posers around the world but today is not Saint Patrick's Day. The holiday was moved to the 15th of March because today is part of Holy Week.

So keep your blue at home (Saint Patrick's color was changed in popular culture to a more Irish nationalist green during the rise of Irish republicanism).

But hey, as part of the twelve percent of Americans who have Irish decent and the two percent or so that has Scot-Irish decent, Catholicgauze salutes all those who this day wish they were Irish.

Nice post... btw, I'm one of those 2% of Scots-Irish.
