Now we all know St. Patrick chased all the snakes out of Ireland, but did you know there's another Saint out there who did something even cooler? This would be St. Urho. He chased all the grasshoppers out of Finland, saving the all-important wine grape. The incantation he uttered, translated in English, is "Grasshopper, grasshopper, go to hell!"
His feast day is the day before St. Paddy, giving Finns a day head starts on the Irish.
They'll need it.
(Some say St. Urho is a myth made up by American Finns, but for those of you who want to start your revels early, you now have a reason).
