Saint Patrick Has His Day
For whatever reason, it is celebrated with Green Beer and Parades that feature old guys making fools of themselves.
And politicians must make their parade appearance too. (But, toned down a little. They want to be just one of the "regular folks" but don't want any photos to show up later that might require some explaining.)
In Montana the center-stage of St. Patrick's Day events is BUTTE. Locals referred to their city as "BUTTE AMERICA" and are very proud of their Irish heritage. In Butte everyone gets to be Irish for a day, and wives, girlfriends and Moms all pray that their boys come home safely.
