Irish-Themed Shave Products For St. Patricks Day

Listen to this article

St. Patrick’s day is coming up and it has always been an interesting holiday for me.  So maybe I should integrate wet shaving into it.

Uncle George And St. Patrick’s Day

Uncle George and Aunt Ann

St. Patrick’s Day was an interesting, and kind of goofy, holiday when I was growing up.  My favorite uncle, Uncle George, had his birthday on 17 March (St. Patrick’s Day).  And there would always be quite the birthday celebration for him, usually Irish-themed–despite him not having one drop of Irish blood (his heritage was Lebanese)!

He used to whimsically tell me that he was the only Lebanese Irishman in the world.

But he did sometimes drink like a stereotypical Irishman (in a good way…he was a happy guy).

Anyway…this time of year always gets me thinking about Uncle George so I thought I would post this article in honor of him.
