Happy Plastic Paddy Day

America is fucking insane about "I once smelt Irish Whiskey so I'm Offically Irish" Day.

Just don't get me started... the first time someone pinches me on St Pads for not wearing Green is the day I get arrested for beating someone with a nice Orange traffic cone "because I'm English and it's symbolic."

For me it's about celebrating my heritage, just as on the Swedish national holiday I celebrate that part of my ancestry, Australia Day is about the fact that I'm an Aussie as are my immediate and not too distant family, same goes for the rest of my ancestry.

Family history is very important for me, and I am bloody proud of every bit of it. If a day like St Paddy's Day makes me, and other people, think more about this kind of thing, or anything to do with Ireland, then imo it's only a good thing.

So what if they get drunk? If it gets people out, socialising and having a good time, then I don't see a problem with it and certainly wouldn't start pointing fingers.

And before that other person who blasted someone in the comments here replies to me:
1. Sod off and don't bother;
2. Greg and I debate shit like this all the time;
3. Sod off again.
