Catch the RainbowWith a title like “Catch the Rainbow”, you would think this was an advertisement for Skittles. But that fruit-flavored candy doesn’t have the monopoly on rainbows. Still, not many people would immediately think of St. Patrick’s Day if they saw a rainbow without a pot of gold. Well, the heraldic color of Pat‘s clothing is Or which mean gold. And a saucepan is kind of a pot, right? So, there you go! This is totally an appropriate image for St. Paddy’s Day! (Some might say that a rainbow without a pot of gold on this day could also refer to a technicolor yell or yawn, but lets not get gross).

I want to wish everyone a happy and safe St. Patrick’s Day… with an emphasis on “safe”. I know that I usually bring up how I feel that this is one of the annual “amateur nights” when it comes to all the drinking that happens. I still want everyone to drink responsibly and to have a designated driver. But also keep in mind that their is a highly contagious virus out there. Not only does drinking reduce our inhibitions but it also makes us sloppy. If you plan on going out on the town or even to a smaller social gathering, consider taking precautions to keep yourself and others free of illness. And now you know. Have a great St. Patrick’s Day!
