On Religious Parties
I got several calls on the 17th about what I was going to do for St. Patrick's Day. I simply responded, "I don't do that, St. Patrick's Day is like Columbus Day."
The story goes St. Patty went to Ireland to drive the snakes out. But get this, there are no snakes in Ireland!!! So what did he do? He went to get rid of the Druids, and Earth Mother/Mother Nature based religions -which are represented by snakes.
So to celebrate this tool of Christian conversion is like celebrating Columbus. No thanks, I'll stay home and listen to U2.
Last year I thought about starting a movement to make Easter a bigger holiday than Christmas. My logic is that all prophets were born, but only Jesus came back to life, so we should celebrate his resurrection more than his birthday.
Anyone want to help destroy the Christmas capitalist machine?
