Green, green Ireland
When I think of Ireland, I think of the color green, potatoes, Irish whiskey, the color green, smiling redheads, green shamrocks and Irish step-dancing.
I also throw in a few leprechauns! (in green clothes of course)
What do you think of?

Saint Patrick's Day, for me, is a fun holiday. Yes, it is meant to commemorate the life of Saint Patrick- who brought Christianity to Ireland, but it also has turned into a celebration of all things Irish!
