Happy St. Patrick’s Day! St. Patty’s Day has to be one of my favorite holidays. Don’t let my red hair fool you, though. I’m less than 5% Irish! However, I lived outside of Chicago for several years, and Chicago does St. Patrick’s Day BIG! The Chicago River is dyed green (not too far from its orginal color!) and a pretty amazing parade occurs every year.
Tonight we’ll be having an authentic Irish-American dinner, complete with corned beef, cabbage & potatoes. For dessert we’ll have shamrock cookies and green jello!
Tonight my boys & I will be reading Magic Tree House #43: Leprechaun in Late Winter by Mary Pope Osborne. Do you have a favorite St. Patrick’s Day book, or book by an Irish author? Do you do anything particular for St. Patrick’s Day, or is it just another day for you?
