St. Patrick's Day in 5768

Was going to write a rant about St. Patrick's Day and all the hubbub about it being during Holy Week this year. Heaven forfend that International Drink 'Til You Puke Day be disturbed because of the liturgical calendar of the Roman Catholic Church. Sr. Mary Martha tackles this in more vituperative depth on her blog.

By the grace of God (and maybe you're able to recite the rest of this sentence), I don't have to freak about staying sober. Indeed, I am blessed with higher class problems this year because Purim starts at sundown on Holy Thursday (3/21) and ends as Easter Vigil gets started (3/22).

I'm trying to figure out when, where, and how I'm going to scarf down a pile of Lekvar or poppy seed Hamentashen and if I should be listening to the Bach, Fauré, or Mozart requiem while doing so.


  1. I was in a restaurant/bar this evening. They are advertising a special offer for St. Patrick's Day -- 25 cent beers starting at 7 am.

    Lord have mercy!

  2. Thanks for your Blog :) God Bless you
