I'm all for the green beer but what about this green balony in my fridge? Think it's safe to eat?

well, I ain't Irisch or anythin' but I sure like to hang 'round at the pub and consume large quantities of Murphy's Irisch red beer in celebration of a saint who chased the snakes from Ireland overseas to holland! LOL

Cheers

Peter

Well, I'm Irish, so, I have a very good excuse to get schnockered today. No green beer for me though, I had a bad experience with that one year *LOL*

Erin go Braugh! (Ireland Forever!)

Hey Kim, Irish and Indian?.....might as well hook up the IV of beer............LOL, I'm kidding. I'm as Irish as they come.........my parents immigrated here 2 months before I was born. All the family is Irish, even the step-parents are Irish.........lol. Yes, I'm Irish and I'm glad................my mum always says, "There are 2 kinds of people in the world, those who are Irish and those that wish they were"..............LOL.

Yes, precisely.....'snakes' being a metaphor for 'pagans/heathens'.

It always strikes me as odd how people over here hang on to thier "heritage". When I here people say they're 1/4 irish, 1/4 scot and 1/2 russian I always want to say" no your not your 100% Canadian." And being Canadian aint so bad is it. Its ts kinda hard for a country to have a strong national identity when noones Canadian. And I'm not tryin to pick on anyone just something to think about.

For the record I'm Irish by birth (born in Kingscourt, Cavan) and Canadian by choice.

Have you read the multicultural act of 1971? It encourages people to be 1/4 this and 3/4 that. Canada is and always will be a melting pot.

Actually the US is the great melting pot. In Canada people have always been actively encouraged to maintian a distinct cultural identity.

Coming from Newfoundland. Our identity is one of the few things that give us our pride. It's one of the few things we have. Thats why you'll always hear a Newfie in the croud.

Well lucky for me I'm not big in to the meaning of things like that, for the most part...lol

The only holiday I actually celebrate the meaning of is Halloweenie. All the rest are as follows...

St. Patrick's Day = Green beer day
Easter = Happy Bunny Day (mmmmm candy :flick: )
Christmas = Happy Halloween (with presents and food)
Thanksgiving = Happy Turkey Day (mmmm food :flick: )

LOL and according to my dad EVERYBODY is Irish on St. Patrick's Day Every year (even though none of us have an ounce of Irish in us) we have a bunch of green beer, boiled cabbage and corned beef, boiled potatoes too.

Yes that is very true, that is what I was trying to say, you did a much better job. We promote diversity, not assimilation.
Peace keeping not policing!
