Happy St. Patrick’s Day 2011
Saint Patrick’s Day is a religious holiday celebrated internationally on the 17th of March. It is named after Saint Patrick (c. AD 387–461), the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland. It originated as a Catholic holiday and became an official feast day in the early 17th century. It has gradually become more of a secular celebration of Irish culture. (via Wikipedia.org
Here is a fun poem for St. Patrick’s Day…. ENJOY
I’ll Wear a Shamrock
St. Patrick’s Day is with us,
The day when all that’s seen
To right and left and everywhere
Is green, green, green!
And Irish tunes they whistle
And Irish songs they sing,
To-day each Irish lad walks out
As proud as any king.
I’ll wear a four-leaf shamrock
In my coat, the glad day through,
For my father and mother are Irish
And I am Irish too!
Have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day – Drink lots of Green Beer, but don’t drive home drunk, make sure to get a taxi or your luck will be lost….
HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!
