Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Posted by Christine Hurt

Milwaukee loves St. Patrick's Day!  Bars are already open and people are already painted green.  My kids call today "St. Packers Day" because when you tell kindergarteners to wear green tomorrow, they all wear their Packers shirts.

Gail Heriot (a member of our Women Blawgers blogroll) has an interesting take on the holiday and history of the Irish in America.  As she notes, on St. Patrick's Day -- everyone is Irish!
