I've really loved the St. Patrick's Day-themed logos and pictures on Talk Budgies this month. I've spent the past 2 weeks at school teaching 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders about St. Patrick's Day. Today, my Irish co-worker helped me to dress up like St. Patrick, go around to all the classes, and take away their "snakes" that they had made in previous classes. Since everyone knew you had to wear green and that St. Patrick was a really old guy, I say that we did our job to teach about English-speaking cultures!
Sammy is munching on a broccoli floret since he doesn't have any green coloring and I don't want to pinch him!
My old school was called St. Patrick's with a green uniform, so we used to take St patty's day very seriously. My friend even dyed her hair green to get into the spirit! x
Haha Found a four leaf clover when I went outside this-morning! x
For us St Patrick's Day was yesterday. Don't you love time differences. Australia has always had a large part of the population from Ireland, many coming here as convicts. And many Australians are from Irish decent, myself included. Mine didn't come as convicts though but paid their own way out here to start a new life in the 1840's and 50's.
I celebrated yesterday with a couple of Jamison's Irish Whiskey's. About all I had the energy to do. Traditionally it should have been Boiled Bacon and Cabbage but I didn't have the energy to do much for dinner last night.
That sounds hilarious, Bethany!
Personally, I'm letting Mallorn slide since she's turquoise. Incidentally, it looks like today is Green Pellet Day for her, too, so there's that...
Also, for dinner I'm having good ol' Irish sausage with potatoes!
I played a few fiddle tunes today on one of my violins (a green one) and took a few Leprechaun hat selfies
and Princess Mallorn!
Thank you to Deb for her wonderful Faery magic
