Let's get it started!

It is this time of the year again, when everybody wears green, drinks too much and sings loudly on the streets: Saint Patrick's Day!

To get things started, some pictures from the 2006 parade in Dublin. This is not the biggest parade you will ever see, but this can still be quite enjoyable. If you arrive early enough to have a good spot, that is.

Several schools are involved in the parade each year, but you also get a chance to see the army, police and fire-fighter units, and their bands.

As you can see, mid-March is not exactly the best time of the year in Ireland, weather-wise. Proper sunshine was missed in 2006, true, but if I had one single request for this year's parade, it would be that no one tries adding a Brazilian touch to it again, please!

It looked quite weird, did not do any justice to Brazil and, given the weather, it must have been a real torture for the dancers!
