St Paddy's Day

It's funny how people celebrate cultural and religious holidays and festivals when there's something to gain. St Patrick's Day is a prime example. How many people actually know who St Patrick was? How many stout atheists are out there drinking it up today? How many people who bad mouth Christianity for sending missionaries to convert native peoples from their religions to Christianity are drinking in the name of the Catholic saint who converted Ireland from Druidism to Christianity?

Nah, it's just an excuse to get shit-faced, it has nothing to do with religion, right?

Don't even get me started on Easter and Christmas. I bet if the gifts weren't so crappy, most athiests would be celebrating the eight days of Hanukah for the presents family aspect.
