Did you know that St. Patrick wasn't even Irish?
Did you know that he didn't really drive all the snakes out of Ireland, there never were any there to begin with?
Did you know that the color green is actually considered unlucky in Ireland? Green is the color of fairies, who steal children wearing too much green.
Did you know that in Chicago, they celebrate St. Patrick's Day by dyeing the Chicago River green? 40 tons of dye is used, which only keeps it green for a few hours.
In other late breaking green news, Pepsi has just made a bottle made entirely out of materials from plants. Coke has been trying to for a long time, but Pepsi apparently beat them to it. The pepsi bottle is made from grass, pine bark, and corn husks. Eventually they will use orange peels, potato scraps, and other leftovers from their Frito-Lay and Quaker snack foods. The bottles will cost the same and be test marketed next year.
I plan on eating this green bagel I bought, and giving the girls these cupcakes with Irish lucky coins and rings on them. Of course we all know that St. Patrick converted the Celts by using these shamrocks as the symbol of the triune God, since they have three leaves. They already worshipped the plant because three was a mystical number in their religion. They were on the right track, good things do come in threes!!
Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, even to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:18,20
