It's sponsored by a beer brand ...?
I was kidding.CC
Nothing embitters one against St. Pat's like spending it in NYC, where people are getting (presumably) drunk and (definitely) obnoxious at 10am.
If St. Pat's day were made a legal holiday, could we then also make Servetus Day a legal holiday? I'm sure there are others too -- heck, we could be on holiday almost as much as the French. :-)
"I was kidding." Oh! Whew!
I suspect that if this petition ever got serious, there would be heavy separation-of-church-and-state arguments against adding another religious holiday to the federal calendar, or at least opposition to a specifically Catholic holiday from John Hagee types who fear the papists.
