The preferred day of celebration for fasting Irish Catholics, this day, Sunday, the 16th, is our Lenten chance for feasting and revelry. Ours is a mild revelry, though. As card carrying Irish progeny (descended from the Gillikin clan) we have corned beef and colcannon on the menu for the afternoon. Then we'll air the traditional once-a-year viewing of our all-time favorite movie, The Quiet Man. We'll have a bowl of bread pudding. We'll toast one another with a cuppa tay or a droppa Guiness, and ask the blessing of the great saint. And we'll be askin his blessing on all of you, just the same!
Have a blessed St. Pat's Eve!
Fair warning...As I wait for the potatas ta boil, I might just take a stroll around the internet and find some more Irish shenanigans ta share with ye!
