St. Patrick's Day is Too Catholic

So it's now known as O'Green Day.  Children will celebrate by eating green vegetables in the school cafeteria.  I swear I'm not making this up.

You see, St. Patrick's Day and Valentine's Day celebrations are just too religious.  All that green beer, shamrocks, crazy hat wearing and other shenanigans are... too Catholic, too Irish and not diverse enough.  And we all know children might be uncomfortable celebrating Valentine's Day since it was named after a saint.  And that love stuff is too Jesus-y.

So an elementary school principal just renamed all the holidays to include everyone. Valentine's Day is now known as Caring and Kindness Day. Awww.  I'm just feeling the tolerance and love here.  It makes me want to party on by eating a brussels sprout in the cafeteria!  Woot woot! 

How are YOU going to celebrate O'Green Day?

  1. Leave it to the politically correct to suck the fun out of life in order to be "fair". Cheers...we'll bump our broccoli together...

    Atlanta has a fantastic day with bands and dancers and kilts and bagpipes, cops, firemen, and candy throwing clowns. And a GIANT float of Saint Patrick. So----there------! I'd love to go, but I'd have to go alone, and that ain't gonna happen. We've gone in the past, though, and had a blast.

    Shouldn't every day be caring and kindness day? It's so stupid. At least have the guts to just cancel the holiday rather than rename it and "celebrate" on the same day.

    Erin go bragh...(Ireland forever), Beannachtai Na Feile Padraig Oraibh:( St. Patrick's Day Blessing Upon You!) OOPS, I mean...happy o'green day.

  3. Political correctness gone mad, that's what this is.
    One of these days we'll wake up in a bland neutral coloured world where everyone looks the same and does the same thing at the same time in the same way as everyone else. Where's the fun? Where's the joy? Life won't be worth living.

  4. How about we just rename all holidays My Little Pony Day and wipe out all trace of history and religious in school. They can prancercise for P.E., too.

  5. Diversity? They're doing this in the name of diversity? That doesn't even make sense... "Let's remove all historical, cultural, religious, and/or political differences from everything so we are all exactly the same in the name of... celebrating our differences!" ...that's just crazy talk.
