Nothing against St. Patrick or his day, but green beer? Really? At any rate it tastes the same, so I'm good.
It is a good thing to have stuff to celebrate. Whether it be the patron saint of engineers, a new relationship, a couple of pounds off the scale - all these things are little or not so little reminders of the positive things in life. By adding a party, a reward, a celebration, a reason to get out with friends, we add even more value to our triumphs and milestones.
What are you celebrating?
