Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day and I didn’t wear any green (and didn’t get pinched either, thank-goodness). I don’t think I’ve worn green for the last three St. Patrick’s Day. I tried to find pictures of the St. Patrick’s parade fr0m 8 years ago to post but couldn’t find them. Kida was one at the time so I doubt she remembers it. Maybe sometime in the future I’ll take the girls to the parade.
Here’s a bit of history on St. Patrick’s Day in the U.S:
The Charitable Irish Society of Boston organised the first observance of St. Patrick’s Day in the Thirteen Colonies. Surprisingly, the celebration was not Catholic in nature, Irish immigration to the colonies having been dominated by Protestants. The society’s purpose in gathering was simply to honour its homeland, and although they continued to meet annually to coordinate charitable works for the Irish community in Boston, they did not meet on the 17th of March again until 1794. During the observance of the day, individuals attended a service of worship and a special dinner. [Ref and more readings: http://en.wikipedia.org].

“And there is a light, from a higher window
Shining down on you tonight
And the music floats on the breeze
Bringing an easier time”
