St Patrick's Day is a national holiday in Ireland - and a day for parades and celebrations around the world. On March 17 it seems that everyone turns Irish - and nationality becomes irrelevant.
Perhaps that's because it's fun to think of Leprechauns and their pots of gold - hidden at the end of a rainbow.
Or perhaps we just love an excuse to celebrate.
And here's my Irish wish for you...
An Old Irish blessing
May love and laughter light your days, and warm your heart and home. May good and faithful friends be yours, wherever you may roam. May peace and plenty bless your world with joy that long endures. May all life's passing seasons bring the best to you and yours!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
