LUCK TO THE IRISH: St. Patrick’s Day

It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day and the U.S. goes shamrock crazy on St. Patty’s, because we have so many transplants and descendants from the Emerald Isle. In fact, our President’s great, great, great grandfather was raised in Moneygall, Ireland.  Almost a quarter of our presidents have had some connection to Ireland.  So, we can all be Irish for a day, right O’MAMAs?

It’s tradition to celebrate all things Irish with parades, music, dancing and lots of Guinness.  Dye the milk green, make some corn beef and cabbage or pick up some Lucky Charms…Erin Go Brah (Gaelic for “Ireland forever”) or “erin go bra-less?!”  Have a little fun and do your own Irish jig today, MAMAs.  Wishing you and yours the luck o’ the Irish today and every day!

Click the link to St. Patricks Day.com and find out how and where to celebrate worldwide.

Here’s an Irish blessing for all O’MAMAs and their families:

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

    Raise your hand if your kid went off to school in a "pinch-free" outfit! Any ideas for making a school uniform "green" if it's not? Beads, buttons, green dots on the hand? Spill MAMAs! Also, my daughter slept with me last night for fear of the midnight leprachaun invasion…hilarious! Happy St. Pats. MAMAs!
