St Patrick's day

St Patrick’s day is coming. I love Holiday’s Christmas was awesome I loved all the cool presents I got. I am so excited to see what I am going to get for St Patrick’s day presents. I am hoping for a remote control cat I can chase around the yard.
I am a little confused about this Holiday. St Patrick what did he really do? The common belief is that he drove the snakes out of Ireland. That is a great idea snakes, eat mice and rats and we all know that in the 14th century mice and rat’s carried fleas which spread plague. It seems that 1/3 of the population of Ireland was wiped out by plague. Was St Patrick really doing Ireland a favor by driving out the snakes?
So we have this guy who drove snakes off an island which makes him some kind of a hero. By the way St Patrick was not even from Ireland he was from Wales.
How did you people come up with the idea of dying everything under the sun green and drinking a lot. I know I am a dog but it seems weird to me. Come on in Chicago you die a river green, in Boston you crawl from bar to bar until you can’t see anymore, how does this memorialize St Patrick. Was he a drunkard who really liked green?
This is all new to me and I just don’t understand it yet. I understand Christmas and New Years but this St Patrick guy I don’t get it. From what I can tell from the dog perspective this guy killed a bunch of snakes which had the ancillary effect of possibly killing a bunch of people. OK maybe this makes him a hero but why all the green and the beer.
Really I am not against St Patrick he must have done something cool. I think you even have to perform a miracle to become a Saint. What was the miracle? Was it the snake thing? Is green beer a miracle? Does Green beer somehow taste better?
Well I am off to barking practice. I do however want to state that I have nothing against this holiday or St Patrick. I would just like a better explanation of the holiday than what I seem to be getting from popular society. It does not make sense I am sure there is a reason St Patrick is great and I would really like to know what that reason is.
St Patrick please tell your leprechaun helpers I would really like a remote control cat in tabby if possible.
