10 Things Thursday

10 things about St. Patrick's Day.

1. It's an Irish holiday...and I am a Flanagan after all.

2. I get to wear green...but I don't own many green items of clothing.

3. There's traditional food...and I have corned beef and cabbage cooking in the crock pot.

4. The traditional St. Patrick's Day color used to be blue...I have plenty of blue in my closet.

5. There's pinching...but there better not be any in kindergarten.

6. St. Patrick taught Christianity...and chased all the snakes out of Ireland.

7. St. Patrick was born in 387...and died on March 17, 461.

8. St. Patrick used the shamrock to teach the pre-Christian Irish...each leaf stood for one part of the Trinity; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

9. At least a few of my students will forget to wear green...and I will have to dig out my shamrock stickers to put on their shirts for them.

10. I want to visit Ireland someday...and pick real Irish shamrocks.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
