Many Pagans think that celebrating St. Patrick's day is an abomination. They feel that because Patrick was a Christian who is celebrated as having run the 'snakes' aka druids out of Ireland that we should not celebrate it at all.

I take a slightly different stance. Because St. Patrick did his duty, as he saw it, he created an even more secretive, more magical practice in his home country. I say let's celebrate the day anyway.. for a different sort of meaning. Let's (those who have a pagan bent) wear the green to symbolize our rebellion from rule and a snake to let em all know we're back.

You can guarantee that I'll be wearing a nice green snake tomorrow..

Ok.. now that my bitch session is over...

happy St. Patrick's day.. in Padraic's honor ...

A happy jig....

A good drinkin song...

A bit of a dirge....

and one for the dreamers...

and one more for the road!

I really do enjoy Irish music. If you listen you can hear the correlation to early mountain music. Magical.

Nice seeing you back. So.....do I say "Happy St. Patrick's Day", or, "Happy Yo Padraic"?

How about this......


Happy happy happy Skwirl Day.

he created an even more secretive, more magical practice in his home country.

Not to be picky (ok...maybe a little...lol) but Ireland was not his home country. He was a roman brit and was captured and brought to Ireland as a slave.

Or maybe I just read that wrong?
