Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone. This is usually a time of transition from winter to spring, so that's one reason to love the day. Being part Irish, I love the day 'just because.' I love the parade, I love corned beed and cabbage, I love the green grass sprouting up with drops of dew. I've never understood why it's turned into a day of getting plastered though. Like Marti Gras. To me, it's a day to see all things new and fresh. To enjoy life and nature. How about you, what do you do for St Patty's Day? Are you wearing green? Not yet? Pinch! Much luck to you, my friends in the year ahead.
Rub for good luck:
And here's a scene from Brigadoon. The magic town is located somewhere in Scotland, but some of the same Irish ideals apply.
