    As many of us get caught up in the whole drinking aspect St. Patrick's Day many of us tend to not remember the real meaning behind the holiday. I know the true meaning, don't falter in my intelligence, but I would like to see how many of you people out there know the actually meaning of this remarkable holiday.

    What I'm getting at is, Do you know meaning of St. Patrick's Day?




    REMEMBER: Drink Safely

    St. Patrick Revealed
    The man behind the green beer and myth.

    On March 17, revelers will drink green beer (and eat corned beef) in celebration of the man who, according to David Plotz, "didn't rid the land of snakes, didn't compare the Trinity to the shamrock, and wasn't even Irish." In a 2000 piece reproduced below, Plotz stripped the myth away from St. Patrick, evaluating the many different popular incarnations that have arisen in the years since his birth.
