I enjoy the sentiment of “everyone is Irish” on St. Patrick’s Day. It allows me to celebrate the very small drop of Irish heritage that flows through my mixed and varied blood. I am officially an American melting pot of various western European lineage. So for today, whether you are pure Irish, participating or enjoying parades and celebrations, or you know of leprechauns and shamrocks only from foreign lore, I wish you a happy day! As I enjoy the “wearing o’the green” I thought I’d share a little Irish culture and humor:
Irish Ballad – Danny Boy by Celtic Women:
Irish Jiggy Jig – Riverdance Final Performance (whew, them’s some fancy feet!):
Irish Drinking Song – Spontaneous comedy at it’s “finest” – Who’s Line is it Anyway sings top 3 Irish Drinking Songs:
Irish Toast: As you slide down the banisters of life may the splinters never point the wrong way.
Irish Proverb: A friend’s eye is a good mirror.
There was an Old Man of Kilkenny,
Who never had more than a penny;
He spent all that money,
In onions and honey,
That wayward Old Man of Kilkenny.
Irish Quote: “Ireland is rich in literature that understands a soul’s yearnings, and dancing that understands a happy heart.”~~By Margaret Jackson
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
