A special shout out to my fellow Protestants of Ulster Scots ancestry. I haven’t been out yet today, but when I do go out I plan to don a shirt similar to this one (but minus the clover). Sadly, the history and symbolism behind the color is so little known here in the U.S. that it rarely gets noticed, let alone commented on. Oh, well. I guess that If I were to don such a shirt emblazoned with the Ulster Banner it wouldn’t cause offense. I’ll have to think about that for next year.
I might also see about getting ahold of a small quantity of Guinness to sip with dinner tonight. As long as it’s been since I’ve partaken of any kind of alcohol, I wonder if I’ll be able to finish drinking it.
So enjoy the remains of the day. This is, if I’m not mistaken, the second Saint Paddy’s Day celebration since the advent of COVIDIOCY, so consider how that impacts public celebrations.
