Happy St Patrick’s Day

You don’t *have* to be Irish to enjoy this day – happy St Patrick’s Day!

Make sure you are wearing something green or you may get pinched… then again you might like getting pinched – snort LOL. I think daddy has his lucky green Irish shirt out to wear today and mom is wearing her green Irish socks. I think they are safe. I think they need to put my green vest on so I can be festive as well. Perhaps mom will get camera happy and take a picture for later on for every one.

I’ve got some St Patrick day facts for you – how many did you know?

St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, although he was born in Britain, around 385AD. His parents Calpurnius and Conchessa were Roman citizens living in either Scotland or Wales, according to different versions of his story.

Wearing green, eating green food and even drinking green beer, is said to commemorate St Patrick’s use of the shamrock. Did you know that mom and dad have been to restaurants on this date where the sweet tea is green! Shocking huh? But the bigger shocker is that the actual color of St Patrick’s Day is blue. Green became associated with St Patrick’s Day during the 19th century. Green, in Irish legends, was worn by fairies and immortals and also by people to encourage their crops to grow.

Popular Irish toats on St Patrick’s Day include, “May the roof above us never fall and may we friends beneath it never fall out.”20130216-212048.jpg

St Patrick’s Day was first celebrated in America in Boston, Massachusetts in 1737.

In Chicago on St Patrick’s Day, the rivers are dyed green.

In Seattle on St Patrick’s Day, there is a ceremony where a green stripe is painted down the roads.

Savannah, Georgia is the second biggest parade party for St Patricks day. Savannah holds a special place in my heart as well as my parents. Did you know that mom and dad adopted me from a little town about 80 miles from Savannah called Broxton. Small world huh?

Lucky Charms, a favorite cereal for young and old, was created in 1963 with it’s popular mascot, Lucky the Leprechaun. Do you remember the tune?

Hearts, Stars and Horseshoes – Clover and Blue Moons – Pots of gold and rainbows – And the red balloon. That’s the luck of me lucky charms! Their magically delicious!

Oh Good Grief Daddy

These days, I can’t let my so called human daddy go anywhere.  He *always* gets into some type of trouble.  St. Patrick’s Day is March 17th.  Dad, the ever loving-gotta-have-some-fun with the holiday, went out on a mission to find some trouble fun.

Now, my dad is part Irish so he thinks this holiday is made for him – snorts

Today, dad found a drinking buddy.  This little guy that dad named O’Donnell sits on his shoulder so that he doesn’t have to drink alone.  And when dad does start to drink, not only does he have a drinking buddy but I’m sure after a few, O’Donnell will even start to talk to him – snorticles.  Good grief.

And just a note.  With dad being part Irish, he once grew a mustache and beard.  You guessed it.  It was redder than O’Donnell’s beard.  He was going to grow one for St. Patrick’s Day but mom said absolutely not.  Dad replied by telling mommy, “You’re not the boss of me.”  Well, you see who won that argument – snorts.

But never fear, even with dad’s Irish roots he doesn’t even drink alcohol.  I guess mom will change the color of his sweet tea to green with a little green dye.  That should make him merry just the same!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day my friends from all of us here at the Hotel Thompson ❤

Leprechaun Catcher

20130314-212652.jpg

I have a little friend named Kelsey. She made this Leprechaun Catcher for St. Patricks Day. Isn’t it wonderful? It totally blew me away. I thought it was the cutest thing! I couldn’t wait to show it to mom. Mom thought it was awesome as well. She said that children come up with some of the most amazing things. I agree.

So I have a question for you Ms Kelsey. Once you catch that leprechaun, can I have the catcher. For some reason when I look at it, my tummy growls. 🙂
