St. Patrick Dissed This Year by Catholic Church in England
The BBC has a story about St. Patrick's Day being canceled because it falls during something called Holy Week. Ireland, not having any of that, moved it up two days and celebrated on the 15th in order to avoid the conflict. The History Channel has more information about St. Patrick's Day than most people have any desire to know. Apparently St. Pat was a real saint and not the dude who invented green beer. Who knew? I'm not Catholic and all I need to know about it is where's the pub?
