honestly, I'm sort of with you; I think it is just an excuse to drink, but here in WI with maybe 10% of the state having some Irish ancestry the bars still get packed to capacity by like nine in the morning. Yet there's a shit-ton og German and Polish ancestry here, and there are Oktoberfest celebrations, but nothing like St. Pattys.... One day out of the year, everybody wants to be Irish (then we remember what Irish people are really like)
lol. you mean the ugliness dont you?

and it St. Paddy's Day.
Never, never ,never St. Patty's. NEVER.
