Saint Patrick's Day!

Today is one of my very favorite days of the year . . . the day of the Irish . . . Saint Patrick's Day!!!

Side note (and in a pointed reprimand for all my Facebook friends who posted photos of themselves wearing green, captioned "St. Patty's Day" this past Saturday), today is Saint Patrick's Day. Saturday was the Ides of March, the day best associated with Caesar's betrayal and resulting death (beware). 

Today is the day we celebrate the Patron Saint of Ireland by wearing green, bedazzling ourselves with shamrocks, keeping an eye out for leprechauns, and in generally thanking the Lord that we (those of us lucky enough to hail from the Emerald Isle) are Irish! So whether you already celebrated this past weekend with some green beer or went to a St. Patty's parade, don't forget to wear some green today in celebration of all things Ireland! 


  1. And as Mark said, it's St. Paddy's Day, not Patty's.

  2. Thankfully I avoided the pinching yesterday.

  3. Wore my green. Did you know Jay Jay's birthday is the Ides of March?

  4. Hello I am here as part of my A to Z duties, and am pleased to see you are like myself doing your bit for the challenge, this is great as it means I can pass by say hello knowing everything is hunky dory. I am you see a lazy chap and terrible at typing as well.

    Good luck but I can see you have done this enough to have everything under control . . . I will return once we get going to cheer and wave flags. . . . .
