Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Everybody’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.  And, why is that, we wonder?  Isn’t there something incredibly infectious about the Irish Spirit that speaks to us all?  It may have been romanticized, but it comes from somewhere… it’s the music, the laughter, the amazing step dances, the sense of fun and camaraderie, the willingness to laugh at oneself in even embarrassing moments.

We have our own favorite irrepressible Irish Spirit … with laughing eyes and a smile that can brighten anyone’s day without a word being spoken.

So, we say …

In the lilt of Irish laughter, You can hear the angels sing. 
And when Irish eyes are smiling,  Sure, they’ll steal your heart away.


Though written by an American, the words of this ballad still speak to me of the charm we find so appealing in the Irish mystique.  And so, from me to you, an Irish Blessing on this St. Patrick’s Day.

    What a wonderful smile to wake up to! Just realized I need to find something green to wear. I have a shawl of the appropriate color that I knit from a friend’s pattern. It’s rather raw today, so maybe I’ll just wrap up in it, dig out my Irish music DVDs, and enjoy the afternoon. Happy St. Pat’s Day to all! (Besides the music, dance and artwork, I would like to thank the Irish for all the beautiful cabled knitwear.)
