Yes indeed, St. Patrick’s Day is here and who will be celebrating? What will you be up to? I just have to ask…Did any of you doubt it? I have a curious and inquisitive mind, so does Autumn…So, I am not alone! There are so many things going on with this holiday it seems. Parades, Festivals, Parties and Shamrocks are all over the place! We have the tradition of wearing green, if we so choose to do. I am wearing green, but it’s my favorite color luckily…I am not lacking in green in all shades of clothing. How about you kind readers, who is wearing green today? Autumn is on it, she has a very pretty green top on today, too.
Irish foods will also be eaten…Lots of Corned Beef and Cabbage, Irish soda bread, Irish stew, Irish Coffee and most anything green I hear tell. Another fun thing…Leprechauns, very magicial indeed! Keep your eyes open, you might catch a glimpse of one or two! Let’s see we also have drinking of the green beer, since the Twinnies don’t drink any type of alcohol that leaves us out. Thoughts on green beer, it’s entirely up to the beer drinker…to each his or her own I say. If you don’t find it repulsive drinking a tinted green beer, have fun but do drink sensibly and have a designated driver and do be safe! I had to say it, I can’t help myself on that one.
Autumn and I aren’t do anything out of the ordinary or special. But we do wish you all a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In celebration of the day I will leave you with two very nice Irish Blessings. “May God grant you always…A Sunbeam to warm you, A Moonbeam to charm you, A sheltering Angel, so nothing can harm you. Laughter to cheer you, Faithful friends near you, and whenever you pray, Heaven to hear you.” The other one is just as nice…”May the road rise up to meet you, May the wind be ever at your back. May the Sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of his hand.” 🙂 🙂
