tell me more…

about St Patrick’s Day

IMG_5334fantasywatermarked

this castle has absolutely nothing to do with St Patrick’s Day…except it’s a bit of fantasy and I dearly love fantasy…which is why I’m intrigued by the history and mystery of

St Patrick’s Day

if you’re interested and haven’t done your own research, try some of these portals to knowledge:

St Patrick himself – something new I learned/realized is that what is known about this man is confusing

leprechaunsΒ – something new I learned…that the leprechaun’s clothing could also be red and that leprechauns work hard making shoes, hiding the money they make in pots at the end of the rainbow

the Pot of GoldΒ – something new I learned…Pot of Gold is also the name of a rock on Mars

the color greenΒ – something new I learned…that the Chicago River (Chicago USA) is dyed green each year to celebrate St Patrick’s Day (hopefully with environmentally friendly dye)

OK that’s enough for today…hope you learned something new too πŸ™‚

leprechaun

Wow…I just realized that my little pixel x pixel leprechaun is 15 years old…I think she’s sitting on that Mars rock πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
