Thread Name: Singalong songs for St. Patrick's Day
Subject: RE: Singalong songs for St. Patrick's Day
I think Kevin expressed a valid point very well. St. Patrick's Day is not just about the little island that seems to have populated so much of the world, but also about the many associations we all have with the place and the way we have experienced the celebration of the day in the past. One thing the day is not about is St. Patrick. I don't want to go down that road too far, but I do believe that he was basically just another interloper from the big island next door and certainly not an unmitigated doer of good. (ducking and running for cover).
