    Saint Patrick was not Irish, and was a convert to Christianity...
    I think NYC had the first parade before our Independence AND Ireland's...

    Funny thing is that they say there were no snakes in post glacial Ireland -
    So does that mean they named the glacier Saint Patrick?

    yes the first St Patricks Day was in NYC, started by the Ancient Order of Hiberians in 1740's, no snakes in Ireland before or after glaciation, its a isolated island like iceland (also no snakes) there is not enough sun for snakes to regenerate heat but they are found in england, but not very numerous.
    yes we need a St Patrick in DC, what we really needed is a******* (deleted)
    there are different versions of who St Patrick was, what is important is that he brought christanity to pagan Ireland
    Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.

    Ahh.... I had an uncle that was an AOH. A little strange, but a good man. Miss him.
    STG, as for pythons, we've got them here in Florida. In spades. You may hunt them for free if you wish.
    I don't eat any boiled meat and drink absolutely nothing dyed green.
    As for me and mine, we originate from West Virginia. Up the Queen.

    We had our parade Saturday. Our group, the Arkansas Scottish Cultural Society, is invited to be in the parade by the Irish Cultural Society of Arkansas every year. We had a great time as always supporting our Irish cousins, and were very gratefull they invited us. Very large crowd, seems to grow every year. Didn't get to party afterwards, no DD. O well!

    Watch "Gangs of New York" by Martin Scorsese. Brits and Irish have been coming here since soon after they landed on Plymouth Rock.
    Old Irish did not like the new Irish, basic moral of the movie which Scorsese wanted to bring out.. Check the names of the KIA from the "War of Aggression" 1800s. Also known as the Civil War. Irish splashed all over the place.
    They got off the boat looking for gold in the streets and got a Union uniform instead..
    The Irish, like the many ethnic groups that make up the stew pot called America, have settled in well. As long as everyone comes here "legally" America has a fighting chance..
    "Why do the Irish and everyone who wants to be Irish that day celebrate Saint Patrick's Day?" Good question, hell I don't know. We use any excuse in the world for a party, even a good Irish wake.. Work hard, play hard.
    Happy Saint Patrick's day...
