Saint Patrick's Day

MISSED GOING GREEN!

Did we miss St Pat’s Day? Oh, oh. We were supposed to find a green hat for our St Pat’s Day pics but we couldn’t find one. But we watched TV while they dyed the Chicago river as green as my harness. The dye is powdered & vegetable-based.The exact formula is as secret as a leprechaun telling where he hid his gold.

SAINT PATRICK'S DAY FACTOIDS

Saint Patrick's Day, March 17, honors Saint Patrick and celebrates ALL things Irish.  Saint Patrick is a Patron Saint of Ireland from the 5th Century.  He is considered the founder of Christianity in Ireland converting a society believing in more than one god. March 17 is the date of his death. Click on the title above to learn about: shamrocks, leprechauns, pots of gold and why we pinch someone not wearing green.

- Re the Shamrock:  Saint Patrick taught the Irish about the doctrine of the Holy Trinity via the Shamrock, a 3-leafed plant, to illustrate the teaching of 3 persons in one God:  the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. 

HAPPY SAINT PATRICK'S DAY!

Can't pinch me, I'm wearin' green. See? No one's ever seen a leprechaun? They're guys? They're smaller than small, have red beards, make & mend shoes & wear green hats and coats? That's easy-peasy. If I can't find one, I know who can. Sophee, Gracee or that team of geniuses on the TV show, 'Scorpion.' They'll find one.
