On St Unicorn’s Day, we drink to remember, instead of our usual reason, drinking to forget.
With these inspirational words from esteemed film director Mike Vogel, I wish you a fantastic St. Unicorn’s Day.
Naturally Portland is a hot bed of unicornaphilia. Evidence suggests that it is not merely legend that this great city was built upon an ancient unicorn burial ground. In Mike Vogel’s treatise on St. Unicorn’s Day, he has confirmed there are archeological bones and horns in dirt type of evidence.
Besides drinking to remember, it is traditional also to feast on [uni]corned beef and boiled cabbage and root vegetables on this day (if some of this sounds familiar, it is because, like so many religious holidays, St. Patrick’s Day is actually based on an old pagan celebration: St. Unicorn’s Day). Once again this year, Heather and I have made our own [uni]corned beef, but you’re in luck too if you stop by plenty of other places around town.
I invite you to share your St. Unicorn’s Day traditions, musings and reflections below!
And once again, to all Portlanders everywhere, I wish you a fantastic St. Unicorn’s Day.
