March 17th is St Patrick’s Day and all around the world millions of people celebrate. There are lots of other saint days but none of them seem to have the world-wide appeal that St Patrick’s day has.
With an Irish father, a brother born on St Patrick’s Day (my father was delighted!) and a daughter who loves Irish dancing, it has always been a special occasion in our house. It is, of course, celebrated in Ireland but it seems to be a much bigger event in America.
