Happy Not St Patrick's Day

While March 17th is traditionally the celebration of St Patrick's Day, this year's should have taken place on March 15th (what was my wedding anniversary, fact fans - oh, and Happy Birthday to Vixen for then as well) as today falls in the Holy Week of Easter.

For some crazy reason the Catholic Church don't like to have too many drunk people eating chocolate (or something) so this year's St Patrick's was moved. It'll be happening again in 2160. This is not the worst bit of moving that has happened to St Patrick, in 1940 his day was moved until April 3rd.

Still, good excuse to be drunk for three whole days, isn't it?
