Let’s all pretend there’s an apotrophe in Stewart’s.
Happy St. Patty’s day, everyone! Sure hope you wore green today. Or, if you didn’t, that you don’t have the kind of friends that would actually pinch you for not wearing green.
So, typically, St. Patrick’s Day is regarded as an Irish holiday. Clovers, green, leprechauns, and beer (supposedly all things Irish). But today’s fun fact (brought to you by gpb.org) is that St. Patrick wasn’t even Irish. He was British. And he was kidnapped and brought to Ireland. And then he was missionary there.
But who cares? No one really thinks about St. Patrick when they celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. It’s all about the excuse to eat and drink and be merry! So here are a few tips on ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year:
1. Corned beef and Cabbage. YUM. Holidays = excuse to eat good food. At least for me anyway. You better believe there will be corned beef and cabbage at this house tonight. (Maybe I’ll try this recipe. Or maybe this one.)
2. Learn some Irish Dance moves. I found a great video tutorial and I think I’m going to try to master it later today.
3. St. Patrick’s Day parade. I don’t think they’ll have one here in Logan. But apparently, there’s a happenin’ one in New York that I bet I can find on the internet. (Believe it or not, Ireland came in seventh on the top ten best St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, far behind New York as number 1.)
4. Green Eggs and Ham. The book, the food, whatever floats your boat.
5. I don’t know a lot about beer, but apparently Ireland makes the best. So get yourself a brew, if that’s what you’re into. Maybe some root beer, or perhaps this recipe for butter beer, if it isn’t.
However you celebrate it, we hope it’s awesome.
