Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day

Hey!  I thought that Saint Patrick’s Day was March 17th?  Well, guess what?  It ain’t so for the year 2008.  Why?  Because the Catholic Church has a little known rule that during Holy Week (the 7 days leading up to Easter), no other saints can be honored.  Land of Begorrah!  No parades, no green beer, no shamrocks or crazy leprechauns in the Catholic world on the 17th this year.  So most folks, at least in predominately Catholic countries, will be celebrating today, or tomorrow, or whenever!
