Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Every year, on March 17th, thousands of people don their greenest garb, search for four-leaf clovers, eat corn beef and cabbage, dance the Irish jig, march in parades, and search for the leprechaun. Whether you are Irish or not, it can be a joyful occasion for the young and the old.

“May you always walk in sunshine.

May you never want for more.

May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door.”

 
As a child, my favorite part of this celebration was wearing a bit of green (so I wouldn’t get pinched). I also delighted in imagining how a leprechaun might appear.luck-o-the-irish-st-patricks-day-wallpapers-1024x768
