I think it's more of a drinking thing. Savannah on St. Patrick's Day is a fun place to be. It's kind of like Mardi Gras but without the nudity. The beer flows green and so do all of the fountains. You gotta have green eggs and ham for breakfast.

I love St. Patrick's Day!! It means that Spring is near and winter closer to being over. At work we make a huge spread of corned beef, cabbage, carrots, etc. served with Irish soda bread. If is my favorite holiday. I think it is better than Christmas because it does not get so much hype.

As far as feasting on a variety of foods, I have never heard of anyone doing that. If food is discussed in relation to St. Patrick's Day then the only foods I have heard have been corned beef, potatoes, and cabbage.
