My youngest daughter was asking me about St. Patrick’s Day last week. Who is he? Why does he have a day? I was ashamed to say I didn’t know. It was time for this mama to be better informed about this green holiday.
The following 3 minute video from History.com sums it up better than I could. It’s pretty interesting and entertaining.
One attribute the video didn’t mention was why you are allowed to pinch someone who isn’t wearing green. Hmmm? Do you know the answer to this? And what do leprechauns have to do with anything? I wonder if St. Patrick is thrilled to have so many people chugging down lots of beer today? You can click on the following graphic to see it bigger from the source, but come back and see the rest of this post.
My kids are (unknowingly) rocking it out for you today.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day from our family to yours!
I couldn’t NOT share music from my all time favorite Irish band.
Have a Lucky day,
