djk,

Is today the begining, end or middle of the week long celebration?

BTW: Patrick is the "p" in Jps1006. No Irish blood though, well very little if any.

I've heard of St. Patricks day from time to time, but I never heard any background about it. I expect a St. Patrick is involved... [Linked Image]

St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland:
http://wilstar.com/holidays/patrick.htm

Other parts of these islands have their saints as well:- St. George (England), St. Andrew (Scotland), and St. David (Wales).

Like the story of St. Patrick and the snakes, there are various myths and stories surrounding them, e.g. St. George is said to have defeated a dragon! [Linked Image]

Wow, that looks like some party! From Paul's link I just learned that the Irish have been celebrating this saint since the 5th century.
