I just wanted to take a Moment and Wish you all a Happy Saint’s Patrick’s Day from us Here at “Legends Undying”!

For me, Saint Patrick’s Day meant wearing Green to School Growing up, or getting Pinched, Lol

I often just said “My Eyes Are Green”, which didn’t fly… I’d get Pinched anyway.

Then as I got older, it became Corned Beef and Cabbage, which was Awesome.

I know for many, it is a Time For Beer!

But I’ve never been all that much of a Beer Drinker, Lol

What does Wikipedia Say about Saint Patrick’s Day?

Saint Patrick’s Day or the Feast of Saint Patrick (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig, “the Day of the Festival of Patrick”) is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated on 17 March. It is named after Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461), the most commonly recognised of the patron saints of Ireland.

Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early seventeenth century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland),[2] the Eastern Orthodox Church and Lutheran Church. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland,[1] as well as celebrating the heritage and culture of the Irish in general.[3] Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, céilithe, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks.[4] Christians also attend church services[3][5] and the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol are lifted for the day, which has encouraged and propagated the holiday’s tradition of alcohol consumption.[3][4][6][7]

Saint Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland,[8]Northern Ireland,[9]Newfoundland and Labrador and Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora around the world; especially in Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand.

And another Site I found with an Article Called “A Global Glance At St. Patrick’s Day”

Ireland
First, let’s take a glance at Ireland, the country where it all began. St. Patrick’s Day started as a holy day in Ireland and continues to be a day of respect and meditation among religious households. Family is an important aspect of the celebration. Many people gather for warm, family meals before joining festivals and parades. While Americans feast on corned beef and cabbage, it’s actually much more common to find bacon and roast chicken on Irish tables.

Italy
The city of Florence celebrates St. Patrick’s Day with “Festa Irlandese,” a 10-day celebration of music and food. People gather from all around to feast on Irish dishes like potato soup and smoked salmon.

Denmark
The Danish bring the luck of the Irish to worthwhile charity! Every year, since 2001, a St. Patrick’s Day 3-Legged Charity Races takes place in Copenhagen, raising money for children’s health and education. It’s a day of fun doing a world of good!

Germany
There is a fairly large Irish community in Munich. It isn’t surprising, then, that the city holds one of the largest St. Patrick’s Day parades in all of Europe! The celebration includes a march and an outdoor party featuring dancers and live music.

The West Indies
St. Patrick’s Day is a national holiday on this beautiful, small island. In fact, Montserrat is often called the “Emerald Island of the Caribbean.” Its landscape is reminiscent of coastal Ireland and many of its people have ancestors from Ireland. Consider it a little piece of luck floating an ocean away.

I also found this Cool Video for a Beef Guinness Stew

For me, it will be another day of Editing, and a Lakers Game later on… No Corned Beef and Cabbage this year, though if I had thought of it sooner, I might have done that. Though I myself have never made it, it would be a cool Challenge.

To All Those Out There Wearing Green, Well Done!

For All Those Not, Eh

You’d figure someone with the Name James Mahoney Would Be Wayyy Into this Holiday

But Frankly, I’m Not, Lol

Though I have had some Fun/Good Ones, Especially the Food

That is All

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
