St. Patrick's Day with some fun fact 1: dry holiday

Let's celebrate St. Patrick's Day with some fun facts:
1. St. Patrick's was a dry holiday in Ireland until 1970. 
Irish law, from 1903 to 1970, declared St. Patrick's Day a religious observance for the entire country meaning that all pubs were shut down for the day. That meant no beer, not even the green kind, for public celebrants. The law was overturned in 1970, when St. Patrick's was reclassified as a national holiday - allowing the taps to flow freely once again.
