Wilbraham students at Soule School to celebrate 'O'Green Day' instead of St. Patrick's Day - and that's no blarney
WILBRAHAM - St. Patrick's Day falls on a Saturday this year, so school children around the Valley and throughout the country will celebrate it at school on Friday.FWIW, Mopar's original link was from Fox News. It appears that the story has been scrubbed from Fox, as every link comes up with an error. I don't think this is a Fox thing, though - the school has been backpedaling so fast you'd think they were an Obama administration official asked about Fast & Furious.
Except at Wilbraham's Soule Road School, which this year is apparently trading in St. Patrick's Day for something called "O'Green Day."
What can I say about this? I mean, it's hard to be genuinely outraged when it's something as far out as this. The school is so concerned about the appearance of religion that they can't celebrate Saint Patrick's day. Right. Because everyone knows that wearing green clothes and drawing pictures about leprechauns is only ONE STEP AWAY from mandatory prayer sessions with the Pope, right?
It is impossible to mock those who self-beclown...
That is all.
