I love Christmas, Easter is fun, Thanksgiving is great for family, and I can even be prodded to enjoy Halloween if I have to, but there is no other holiday all year quite like St. Patrick’s Day. Apparently, it all began with this guy, St. Patrick in Ireland, and there’s some definite religious aspect to it, but I really don’t care too much about all that. If you’re so inclined go read all about it, I’ll be over here with my green beer.
St. Patrick’s Day to me has been and always will be a time to raise a glass, sing Irish songs with your friends and Erin Go Braghless or something like that. It’s FUN!! And the one day of the year we’re all Irish. So, leading up to St. Paddy’s Day, I’m going to share some pub-worthy songs with you, starting with the most famous sons of Ireland, U2.
This song still gives me chills.
It was filmed at Red Rocks, which in just a little trivia for you, is also where Mumford & Sons filmed the video for I Will Wait.
Now, get your Irish up and enjoy the week leading up to the happiest day of the year.
