The water in the Seagull River wasn’t dyed green today for St. Patrick’s Day and I didn’t see any leprechauns skating on the ice out there either. I’m not Irish but I always wanted to be Irish because they get to celebrate their ethnicity on their very own special day. I suppose I could have ignored my German heritage and adapted the Irish way but it would really only benefit me one day of the year as opposed to my German celebration of Oktoberfest that usually lasts for a few weeks.
In any case I hope you have a great St. Patrick’s Day!
An Old Irish Blessing
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
