    Default How do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day?

    I'm Irish-American, so every day is St. Patrick's Day in our house. We play a lot of Irish music

    (LOVE the High Kings!), use a lot of Irish expressions, bless everything, and eat Irish-American food. On St. Pat's

    Day we get a little more goofy and wear green and decorate the house. I would love some new, fresh ideas for making

    the day (or the whole month) special.

    Talking Celebrate

    Wow, sounds fun! I love Celtic music!! I don't have any super new ideas...but maybe you could

    learn a new song, dance, poem, instrument, or recipe. At an Irish cultural festival - there are workshops on all

    kinds of things like - the history of the Irish language, decorating leather with celtic knots, hurling, harps,

    basket weaving, & genealogy...

    I usually leave SPD to the Irish, and for good reason. Dancing to Celtic music ties me into

    Celtic knots, and the only time I practice hurling is after too many Harps.

    I used to make my living playing

    Irish music on the fiddle. I was absolutely crazy about the fiddle and the music in those days. I think I spent

    the entire Spring Summer and Fall in Ireland for 7 consecutive seasons. Since then, other passions have overtaken

    me I suppose. Back in the "good old days" St. Paddy's Day meant non-stop gigs for a week or so.

    and the Bothy Band were a couple of my favorites to listen to in those days.

    To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
