Thread Name: Singalong songs for St. Patrick's Day
Subject: RE: Singalong songs for St. Patrick's Day
The same kind of rabble-rousing went on last year at the St. Patrick's day parade in Scranton, Alice, so this year there were more controls in place and I understand it was a much quieter and more pleasant day for families, etc., without the hordes of drunken revelers in the street. One thing they did was ask the local taverns not to start serving alcohol until 11 a.m. - as opposed to the usual 7 a.m.! I understand it helped!!

Unfortunately, we don't have a lot of Irish music around here - and the few places that do have it get so over-crowded you can't even breathe in them. Or maybe I'm just getting old!

Paddymac, I'll agree to disagree with you about the good Saint, but I do agree that the one thing St. Patrick's day isn't about, is himself!

Leprochaun, keep an "eye" on those contact lenses! :o) (Oh, yuck! Sorry, folks!!)
