Makeshift Irishness

The Montreal St. Patrick's Day parade, where Irishness seems to be measured by how many items of green clothing you're wearing, and how publicly drunk you are.

A green-painted Zamboni becomes a float.

Winston Chuchill's Britishness is ignored because of its stronger association as the name of a pub.

The lovely ladies of the Red Hat Society of Quebec, who insist on wearing red hats and purple clothing. They added green to their repertoire for the day.

Big man, big band.
