I believe the begining of St. patrick's day was from the christian saint who was give the name Saint Patrick after murdering Witches, Druids, and other Pagan's. He was know as converting Pagan's to Christianity and killing a good few hundreds of pagan's or even thousands. I am saying that the orgin of this holiday should be demolish to pagan's or what not but hey it is your way of choice not mine. This is an Irish Holiday.
BTW- I did not wear green nor did I get pinched....
