There is a message hidden in the post today:
Growing up we didn’t really celebrate St Patrick’s Day,
usually there was corned beef or maybe a banner
in the kitchen hung with tape, but that type of thing was
not uncommon in my house and could just as easily been a birthday.
No one in my immediate lineage was from Ireland so that made it
easy to not really care or realize that I was missing
So then I got married. My wife is from a very
Irish family, and St Patrick’s day was definitely
something to celebrate.
Going to her grandmothers house for the delicious food and
obviously some drinks as well quickly became
one of my favorite annual traditions. Happy Saint Patrick’s day
