LUCK OF THE IRISH


I don't mind this Monday!!!! I feel lucky today!!! So kiss me, I'm Irish!!!
Ok. maybe a part of me is Irish. The other two parts are Czech and Dutch so take your pick!!!! I have always enjoyed St.Patrick's Day, and contrary to popular belief it's not because of the libation consumption!!! I have no idea why, but it has always put me in a good mood.
On St Patrick's Day it is customary to wear shamrocks and/or green clothing or accessories ,the "wearing of the green". St Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish. The color green has been associated with Ireland since at least the 1640s, when the green harp flag was used by the Irish Catholic Confederation. Green ribbons and shamrocks have been worn on St Patrick's Day since at least the 1680s. Today, my major decision will be which too wear for fun........

It always tickles me to think if people wonder if I'm wearing any green!!! Will you be wearing any green or shamrocks? After work I have two friends coming over for a few libations and a corned beef and cabbage dinner. I love my holiday foods traditions!!!! In the United States and Canada, consumption of corned beef is often associated with Saint Patrick's Day. Corned beef is not considered an Irish national dish, and the connection with Saint Patrick's Day specifically originates as part of Irish-American culture, and is often part of their celebrations in North America. But if you all know me, the only St.Patrick's tradition and happy I need is my over dose on the minty goodness of that oh so sweet weakness of mine.........


THE SHAMROCK SHAKE!!!!!!!


yes friends, I have a good overdose of these delicious things till there gone!!! I really wish they were here for one day only. Good thing I have a couple suitors to help work them off.

Happy St.Patrick's to you all!!!!
