Like most holidays, St. Patrick's Day has some shady beginnings. But that was the olden times.
At this point most people use the day to spread merriment and get roaring drunk. To claim themselves Irish thus receive all manner of kisses. And on this day, towns dye their rivers green.
As for me, I've been lax on my celebration of St. Paddy's day. I need to add it to my days of celebration. I need to buy a green dress and get all Erin go Braugh. Next year I will be schlepping all five of us to the parade. Cause really, one cannot celebrate TOO MANY holidays.
AND I LOVE BAGPIPES!
AND BIG BOOMING DRUMS!
But alas, today I will be quiet and contemplative. Because I'm feeling my own special whispers of green. Looks like morning sickness is peaking it's head above ground. Just like the last two times.
So, wish me luck as I plow through.
And have some green beer for me. Raising a glass to the holiday. What ever it may mean to you! :)
