St. Patrick’s Day is my favorite holiday. I have a sentimental side that is in love with the culture in which I was raised and an affection for involving everyone in a holiday that subjects people to rowdy greens, parades, bagpipes and green beer.
Last year, I had the flu. This was not acceptable. A woozy 2 days on the couch with phone call updates on the fun being had…. not this year.
South Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade and party. A good welcome to life in the spring, fun people and lots of green so here’s a little green and emerald inspiration for today!
Saint Patrick was a gentlemen,
Who through strategy and health,
Drove all the snakes from Ireland,
Here’s a toasting to his health.
But not too many toastings
Lest you lose yourself and then
Forget the good Saint Patrick
And see all those snakes again.
Beannachtam na Feile Padraig!
