Hi everyone. I would like to wish you all a Happy St Patrick’s Day, wherever you are in the world, whether you’re Irish or not! Today everyone is an honorary Irish person!
So happy to see so many worldwide landmarks turn green for the day – Sydney Opera House, The Pyramids, Niagara Falls, Christ the Redeemer Statue, to name a few.
Here’s an Irish blessing for you:
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
The rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
In 2013 The Gathering is happening in Ireland. It’s a year-long celebration of Ireland and all things Irish. It’s an opportunity for people to come to Ireland and ‘when we get together, great things happen.’ Check out their website to find out more (there’s also information about tracing your roots, if you have Irish blood).
In Ireland it is customary to speak Irish today. So I will leave you with this. Go n-éirí an bóthar leat (Guh nigh-ree on bo-her lath). Good luck!
Happy St Patrick’s Day to you ♡
