This day is extra special to me because I was blessed to have lived in Ireland for 12 years; and made some lovely friends.
And I have friends here who are of Irish decent. Each year at one of the March birthday celebrations the theme is St. Patrick’s Day, even though not actually on THE day. There is a sign draped across the fireplace mantle, shamrock plants on the tables and at least some of us wearing green. We have a great time…especially the birthday boys who are more interested in the gifts they are getting.
I don’t always have anything special planned for St. Patrick’s Day itself, but tomorrow I do.
No, I am not going to tell. I will tell about it at another time, so you will have to stay tuned.
In the meantime, I just heard this young man sing Danny Boy on Britain’s Got Talent http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utfkGocmCiE&feature=related His voice gave me goose bumps. Enjoy.
