Who is St. Patrick?
Well according to the History channel St. Patrick was the patron Saint of Ireland. And the idea of St. Patrick’s Day came from a religious feast in Ireland celebrating St. Patrick.
That being said we know that today, at least in the United States, the idea of the celebration is just an excuse to get ridiculously intoxicated, do stupid things, and make a fool out of yourself. And today, in Pittsburgh, was the celebration and parade. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get away from work to see the parade, and I think I’m getting to old or to mature to do the drinking part of the day. So when I took my walk this evening I was looking for something that I could use to represent the celebration and yet still stay clear of as many of the drunks as I could. What I found was the old Pittsburgh courthouse which was covered in green light for the celebration.
What do you think of my representation of the celebration? How would you represent the celebration?
