Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone! :budgie:

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! ;)

How are you celebrating St. Patrick's Day? :D:D

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 :giggle:

I love it! Thanks for making my breakfast time super fun with the St. Patrick's Day antics! :)

After 2 weeks of St. Patrick's festivities at school, I only had the energy to throw some veggies in the oven and roast them for dinner (new potatoes, broccoli, onion, heirloom tomatoes, and green peppers). It was very green and beautiful!

There are two Irish teachers at my school, and I laugh a lot when one says "ye" to refer to a group of people! :laughing: She has such a beautiful and melodic way of speaking!

Then there are us three Americans, two with Irish and mixed backgrounds (from the foothills of Appalachia!). All we could say was "día duit" ;)

Your dinner sounds delightful to me, Bethany.

I'm a bit sad to see the St. Patrick's fun come to an end
However, (because I can) I'm declaring it "Irish Month" and leaving the Irish Logo, and my Irish signatures and pictures up until April 1st. :laughing:

I too love the Irish way of speaking the English language. So much more pleasant than most "American" accented English. ;)

I could sit and listen to people from Ireland, and Scotland [Sean Connery :love:], speak for hours and it wouldn't even matter what the person was saying! :laughing:

Sounds good to me Deb.

I too love the Irish brogue, much gentler than our Aussie accent. We have lots of Irish visiting here. Backpacking to Australia is very popular in Ireland. Because we are part of the Commonwealth they can do casual work over here while they are traveling around the country. And some decide to stay permanently.

Let the crack begin. :party2:

We need an Irish Smiley.

I agree -- we DO need an Irish Smiley!!
I'm going to see if I can find one somewhere and if so I'll upload it. :D
