Today it is a national holiday in Ireland, celebrating the Saint Patrick's Day.
I never knew of this celebration until my move to the US in the 90s, where this is an unofficial, but highly publicized holiday. I recall how people would be telling me to dress all in green and I had no clue why.
These days this holiday is observed to a more or lesser extend all over Europe, even outside Ireland as well. I guess often as a reason to party in the multitude of Irish pubs and bars, which are so popular all over this continent.
In the spirit of the day and considering that anything Irish is very close to my heart, here is a little something for everyone, who enjoys a perfectly poured Guinness.;)
