Now that Valentine’s Day is over, it’s time to look ahead to St. Patrick’s Day. We aren’t huge celebrators of the holiday, but it’s fun to do a few things. This year I thought I would be fun to have a St. Patrick’s Day Dinner. I’m pretty sure my grandkids think I’m nuts, but that’s okay. “Every year on March 17, the Irish and the Irish-at-heart across the globe observe St. Patrick’s Day. What began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, special foods and a whole lot of green.” (History.com)
Growing up I thought I was German. I am not. I don’t know why I thought that, maybe because I was born there or something. I am actually Irish and English. Funny story about that. My husband is Scottish and English and when we were in Scotland, we talked to this guy who knows all about family names and history and found out that had we been around back in the 17th or 18th century, we would have been like Romeo and Juliet.
