How to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day:  This day has been associated with parades and parties and festivals.  Of course Green Beer and Irish whiskey are always tried and true for those of us over 21.  For the wee ones try adding Green food dye to water, ice tea or soda.  Makes for a fun and festive drink.  Shamrock cookies and candies add to the Sugar overload.  Always have fun and remember that this is a day of fun and frolic.  We could talk about the history of St. Patrick’s Day and American and Irish traditions, but the Internet is full of stories about the history.  We just want you to know we believe the love of all things Celtic should be a year round experience not just celebrated on one day per year and forgotten.  So here’s a wee toast for March 17th

The Wearin O the Green

Parades and festivities abound.
Wee ones and adults alike frolic around.
Shopping and Crafts and holiday faire
Line the city streets and rural routes everywhere.
After the parades and shopping end
And the sugar overload in our kids mend,
We send them to bed thinking of a St. Patrick’s Day dream
And we head to the pub for a shot of Jim Beam!
Or Jameson Irish Whisky for the Celtic Attic Team. Ó Kristin Olsen 2014
