1. What is the best job you ever had?
2. Did you know they changed the date of St. Patrick's Day?
3. Can you explain to me why they changed the date of St. Patrick's Day?

2. Yes -- only in terms of the official church observance of the date.

3. The Catholic church tries to avoid observing certain saints' feast days during Holy Week. This year, Holy Week begins on March 16, and so they moved the church observance of St. Patrick's Feast day to the 15th so as not to conflict with Holy Week. Next year it'll be on the 17th again.

It's the fact that Easter moves around, plus the fact that St. Patrick's Day is a bit big, that makes this occasionally necessary. If it were the feast of St. Assumpta of the Little Cistern, that may not have happened.

St. Assumpta of the Little Cistern

I giggled a bit at this, and, not being Catholic, googled it. Then giggled some more. (Am I going to burn in Hell?)

1. I haven't had a job that I would consider "best job." They've all kind of sucked.

2. Yes, but I don't care. It'll still be on the 17th for me.

3. Ditto what queencallipygos wrote.

1. This is tough question, cause any job can be the best job for different reasons. I think, so far, the best job I've ever had is my current one, at the bank, because it the most career-like job I've ever had. The money is better than most jobs available for students, the hours are great, and I like the people I work with most of them.

2. I had no idea!

3. Will you tell me?

2. Yup. I knowed this about 2 months ago. :-)

3. Cause the Pope don't want no steenkin' dreenkin' during Holy Week!

1. Working as a concession/box office attendant at a movie theater. Yes, it was my first job and no, it didn't pay well. But I could see movies for free.

2. Say what now?

3. Say what now?

Oh, good grief.

No thoughts on St. Patrick's Day (it will always be the 17th to me), but the best job I ever had was probably my first teaching job, elementary school art K-5. Ahhh, those were the days.

1) No clear front runner on "best job" but working as a Video Game Tester, was pretty freakin cool most the time. Now worst job... Oh ya. But anyway.

2) What, huh? My anniversary is on St Patrick's Day. Did they move that too!?!? Why didn't I get the memo!?
