As February draws to a close, we find ourselves approaching one of the greatest days ever, "International Get Drunk Day", also known by it's other names, "Buy Stock in Green Food Coloring Day" and the lesser known "St Patrick's Day".
This holiday dates back to 1738 when St Patrick invented green beer. This invention was an accident, occurring when the patron saint of Ireland ran out of milk for his Lucky Charms (wich at the time, only had the green shamrock marshmallows) and decided to substitute beer. As he finished his breakfast, he was amazed to discover his beer had turned green, and the rest is history.
Today we celebrate the holiday by putting green food coloring in anything liquid, and drinking any of these liquids that happen to contain alcohol in large gatherings.
The show starts sometime around 2:00pm EST on March 17. If anything changes, I'll post a new blog.
