Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy Saint Patrick's Day


Happy St. Patrick's Day my friends!!!  Will you be doing anything special to celebrate today?  Believe it or not this is a holiday I do not decorate for.  We usually do not do anything special other than wearing green so we don't get pinched all day.

One year, several years back, I had to be in New Orleans for work and I brought the hubs and Brooke along with me.  It just so happened to be St. Patrick's Day so we were able to celebrate the New Orleans way with a fun parade and lots of beads.  Brooke loved it.  It was so lively with lots of people partying and having a good time.

I don't know about you but I grew up hearing it was all about the luck of the Irish, good health, good luck and happiness.

I decided to do a little research on the big wide web and discovered the three leaf clover has a religious meaning.

Did you know this?  I truly don't recall ever being told this and I am very surprised as I was raised Catholic.

Here's a St. Patrick's Day song for children that tells the story.  I found it to be very interesting.



I'm really curious.  Did you know the meaning of the three leaf clover or were you in the dark like me?  I certainly didn't teach my girls this when they were little.  I'm curious to see if they know.

I hope you have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

  1. Happy ☘ day! And yes, I did know that about St Patrick and the shamrock. I used to teach it to my Sunday school kids many years ago. 😊 I don't decorate much either, but I always have a leprechaun hunt for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for my 5 grands. (Rainbow licorice and gold chocolate coins). Fun! 🌈

    1. Happy St. Patrick's day to you, Sue. I never thought about having a leprechaun hunt for the grandkids. That sounds like a lot of fun. I may have to steal that idea from you for next year. Thanks for stopping by!
