Did you know that in Ireland on St. Patrick's Day, what they do is to go to mass and then go home and have a nice quiet dinner. Yep, it's true! No green beer, or beads, or parades, and they've never heard of corned beef. Hope I didn't burst a bubble. Just sayin'. It IS the prettiest country ever, and I am proud to be of Irish Heritage! :) Hurray!
Here's my favorite Irish Toast:
"There are wooden ships and metal ships
(the ships that sail the sea),
but the best ships are "friendships"
and may they always be!"
"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!” -Jack Kerouac
