Saint Patrick's Day is one of the most exciting holidays we can celebrate each and every year! It comes during the best part of the year and allows people to take a break from the mundane reality of their day to day lives. Life can become so boring when we follow the same daily routine over and over - waking up for the day, going to work or going to school, coming home, eating dinner, and then falling back asleep. That type of routine can become annoying if it goes on for too long without something special in the midst of it all.

On March 24th of 1997, a man named John Leno who published "Of Famine and Green Beer" wrote something about this great holiday in the U.S. News & World Report. He wrote, "Along the way, the St. Patrick's Day parade, once a defiant show of strength against Protestant power, gradually declined into a pointless annual march of aging suburbanites and drunken collegians staggering along in funny hats." Saint Patrick's Day is one of the best things that can come along to be interjected into a mundane lifestyle. It is a great time to break free from your daily routine and run wild!
