So Saint Patrick’s Day is upon us. We haven’t really done much before for this little holiday, but I’m thinking this year we should. We need some silly festivities. Luckily, 0ur neighborhood is on the end of the route of a really large St. Patrick’s Day Parade so we’ve got that going for us. I’ve already spray painted some rocks gold. Cool, right? I’ve got to find a little bucket to fill up with gold nuggets now. I thought it would be fun when the kids are older to spray a whole bunch of rocks and then go around the neighborhood and leave them in peoples yards, porches, by their cars. Ha! Imagine their confused faces. That’s on my future list.
Alright. So, I’m thinking of having a healthy family breakfast of some Lucky Charms. The kids would be surprised because we do not buy that kind of cereal, ever. Then, maybe we could go all healthy and try a rainbow inspired fruit snack…like this. Then green beer, cabbage, potatoes & soda bread for dinner maybe? Nah, Irish dinner doesn’t sound too appealing. My apologies to all of my Irish ancestors. My children wouldn’t touch any of that food. Pizza it is then!
We could school the littles and ourselves a bit on the history of St. Pat’s here. There’s lots of neat stuff, information and videos. And when we are around the house or eating our un-Irish dinner we could tune in to Pandora’s traditional Celtic music station. Of course, we shall wear green & use shamrock pencils and all that stuff too. Sound good?
Happy St. Patrick’s All.
