The Irish are known for being bold, out-going, and loud compared to the average bear. Or so I'm told. "Fiery Red Head" is a phrase I hear often and it makes me smile since hubby usually follows it with, "You are just like your mother." If you are Irish, or lucky enough to marry an Irish, you'll chime in and leave a comment later.
I work as a teachers' assistant for the local public school and have known to show up on St. Patrick's Day dressed in an Irish green glittered dress, shoes, and hat. With it falling on a Saturday this year, I wore my "Keep Calm and Get Your Irish On" t-shirt since it was a Superintendent's Conference Day. For today, my shirt says "I don't need luck, I've got God."
When you think about St. Patrick's Day, what do you think of? Is it the parades? The "Kiss me I'm Irish" buttons and shirts? or how you need to get home early so you are safely snuggled in before the bars and taverns close at 2 a.m.? Hmm...did I miss anything?
