Good Friday!

Oh, forgot to tell you about this. The Friday before Easter is called "Good Friday" in Ireland, and you have to be a saint on this day! No sins, No drinking, No picking your nose! lol! The rules are soooo strict that you can't have drinks in restaurants. And all bars are closed everywhere in Ireland on this day. You can't even purchase alcohol in supermarkets and they have big, thick, black covers over all the alcohol sections of the store, just to make sure you don't commit a sin by looking at the exotic bottles! I think this day is the hardest day on the Irish people...hehe, the funny thing though is that once the day is over at 12:01 am all bars open up to celebrate their patience for not drinking for a WHOLE day!
