In honor of the day, I'm posting a picture from Bellingham's first annual St. Patrick's Day parade. As does most of the United States, here in Bellingham we ignore all religious and political roots of the holiday and use it as an excuse to dress silly, drink green beer, and throw a parade.

These folks are from Uisce Irish Pub. Our English word "whiskey" is actually an anglicized pronunciation of the Irish term for it: "Uisce beatha," or "water of life."

Happy St. Patrick's Day!


  1. Happy Paddy's day from 2 Dubliners by heart! Having some of that water later!

  2. hahahahahahahahahaha! Good idea!

  3. Hope you had a great St. Paddy's Day!! Cheers!

  4. Interesting history of whiskey. Glad I'm not Irish as I don't like whiskey very much ... regular water is much kinder -:)
