St. Patrick's Day is coming up. There will be parades. There will be hideous green clothing. And there will be drinking. Lots of delinquent, debauched and derelict drinking.
Wait, isn't St. Pat's Day a Feast Day? Won't there be church services? Shouldn't I be shining my halo, rather than girding my gut?
Well, yes. And what better fodder for the return of Conflation Station to this blog could there be? The mix of sacred and pagan is, oh, so much fun!
All this talk of booze, ritual, robes, shamrocks, leprechauns. It's too much!
Speaking of leprechauns, I actually think they're kind of hot. You know, they've been formally described as "degenerate fairies". This from a man named Mr. McAnally.
