Happy Shamrock Day?

Apparently the name "St. Patrick's Day" has become too divisive and controversial. Since the origin of St. Patrick's Day is the celebration of the Christian Faith proclaimed to the Irish by St. Patrick (who died on March 17, 461), it seems ironic that some (i.e. Disney and card stores) would seek to declare that religion gets in the way of celebrating this day.

"The Annointed", who know better than the rest of us, have struck again in with their semantics war. This is as crazy as Janet Napolitano saying that "terrorism" is now to be known as "man-caused disasters" so as not to foster an "atmosphere of fear." Gag, gag, gag.

Why not celebrate "Shamrock Day" or rather "Comprehension of the Doctrine of the Trinity"?

We celebrate the exhaltation of the Holy Cross.
