St. Patrick's Day... and all

(Whenever I don't post for a long time, I feel the need to apologize for my absence. So sorry, all two of you who read. =p)

It's St. Patrick's Day! We'll all wear green, but what we really get happy about today is it's my dad's birthday. Wish he was here to celebrate it with us. (No, he's not departed, he just lives on the other side of the world.)

Some other random green musings:

  •  I made a fun treasury for my Etsy team. Click on this link to view it.
  • There will be no green beer for us today. I'm watching my sugar and my awesome hubs shared a shamrock shake with me yesterday, so I'm trying to recalibrate things today. Not to mention, green beer is just gross.  
  • I'm a big fan of Marvillosa Jewelry and this is my favorite piece in that shop right now. It's not Irish, but I'm more into the Scot thing anyway.

  • St. Patrick’s Day is observed on March 17 because that is the feast day of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. It is believed that he died on March 17 in the year 461 AD.
  • Legend says that each leaf of the clover means something: the first is for hope, the second for faith, the third for love and the fourth for luck.
And that's all I got. Hope it's a good day and you don't get pinched or leprechauned on.

St Patricks day is huge inDetroit, where I am from. Its bigger than New Years eve. Party starts at 5am for the midnight workers! Its so much more fun up north. My kids love those shamrock shakes!

I grew up in NJ & PA and I do remember it being a bigger deal up there. I think once our kids are bigger we'll actually go out & celebrate more.

Leprechauned on?

Yes, St. Patrick's Day sure is a big deal here in NJ. I don't even know why. There are three different parades, in three different towns on three different weekends leading up to the 17th. In fact, my boss unthinkingly scheduled an important training on the day of one of these parades (on the 8th), and some people got excused from the training to go to the parade. Ridic, if you ask me! I don't know what the big deal is.
