Top o’ the mornin’ to ya! While that isn’t an Irish accent so much as a Lucky Charm’s accent, I still think that it’s necessary to bring it up on St. Patty’s day, that day that has become so far removed from the original feast day of St. Patrick that few people still consider that connection as relevant.
I didn’t do a lot to celebrate. I didn’t even wear green. But what I made sure to do was eat a potato. I baked some potatoes and at them while watching Selection Sunday. I didn’t go to any parties (it’s a Sunday for goodness sake!) and I didn’t watch my favorite Irish themed movie, Boondock Saints.
All I did for my St. Patrick’s day was to prepare for the coming week. It’s going to be a busy one, so I didn’t have time for superfluous celebrations. Plus, how can I top my St. Patrick’s celebration from two years ago, when I saw Flogging Molly in concert. That’s the best way to celebrate Irish-American culture.
