Orange Day

Having established my Protestant credentials in my last post, it may not be a surprise that I do not observe Saint Patrick's Day. My (maternal) Irish ancestors were the sort who got into fights with RCs and made the kids wear orange on March 17. Even though I attend services in a Lutheran church, I am, deep down, something of an Orangeman.

Mitch Berg has a good post about how he looks at this date (a cry for diversity? Ha!), but I think the post that best sums up how I feel about March 17 can be found at Kim DuToit's blog. Just another day at the office.
