I couldn't figure out why the news was talking so much about St. Patrick's Day yesterday, as it is still almost two weeks off. Today I saw a report that clarified that yesterday the St. Patrick's parade was held in Hoboken, NJ, just across the river from Manhattan. Presumably this was to avoid competing with NYC's parade, but most of the stories focused on Hoboken's zero-tolerance policy towards unruly drunken behavior, which goes right along with my thinking that one day is more than sufficient to celebrate an occasion centered around, well, unruly drunken behavior. Speaking of unruly drunken behavior, this all coincides with Mardi Gras celebrations getting underway, which are also a little early, but less-so, as Shrove Tuesday is just two days off. Oh well, as long as everyone is safe and careful, Erin go Bragh, chere!
