Kids at Soule Road School in Wilbraham, MA ate green veggies and wore green today but, begorra, under no circumstances were they celebrating St. Patricks Day! Instead, it was Happy OGreen Day.
Inclusive and diverse, and to ease any discomfort that may go along with celebrating St. Patricks Day was the (non) reasoning behind the name change, according to principal Lisa Curtain.
Not so, says the more diplomatic school superintendent, M. Michael OShea who undoubtedly has his share of Irish ancestry.
Soule Road has not changed the name of St. Patricks Day. St. Patricks Day is on the Soule Road calendar OGreen Day on Friday March 16 and was set up to encourage students to celebrate the holiday by wearing green, he said as he sought to placate angry parents.
Im not buying it. Last month St. Valentines Day was name-changed and homogenized to Caring and Kindness Day due to faith issues.

Non-believers seem determined to celebrate the holidays (Holy Days) but without the Saints to whom those days are dedicated. They are a very confused lot.
Agreed. Confused and blind, I would say...
So we have to be politically correct about St. Patrick’s Day? Are liberals offended because there was an actual St. Patrick, a saint of the Catholic Church? So, somehow religion is being imposed by talking about St. Patrick’s Day????
but St Patrick and St Valentine's Days?
That’s how the left-wing psychos see it. When they finally learn the etymology of the word holiday(”holy day”), they’ll probably try to ban that word as well.

Celebrate diversity by quashing it?
People have gone insane.
Look, “diversity” is defined as one man sticking his penis in another man’s behind. Celebrate it or else!
