Kiss Me!

In honor of St. Patty's Day, I am giving away free Irish kisses! [of varying intimacy, valid only in my household, void where prohibited, not redeemable for cash value]

For those of you not blessed with an Irish Kiss this holiday, there are still some other fun ways to celebrate.

You can learn about St. Patrick-for instance, did you know he wasn't Irish?-and the history of the holiday.

For the culinarily inclined St. Patty's is an excellent excuse to get creative! Try some traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage, or impress your significant other and thrill your kids with some delicious Green Eggs and Ham.

Going with green beer this year? Learn some Irish Toasts! Here are some fun ones:

As you slide down the banisters of life may the splinters never point the wrong way.

An old Irish recipe for longevity:
Leave the table hungry.
Leave the bed sleepy.
Leave the bar thirsty.

Here's to a long life and a merry one.
A quick death and an easy one.
A pretty girl and an honest one.
A cold pint-- and another one!

There are good ships,
and there are wood ships,
The ships that sail the sea.
But the best ships, are friendships,
And may they always be.

If you're more like me, you can snuggle up with a good book-Gulliver's Travels, The Chronicles of Narnia, Angela's Ashes, and The Picture of Dorian Grey are all written by people from the Emerald Isle.

There are so many ways to have fun on St. Patrick's Day, and you don't even have to be Irish! Have fun, and don't forget to wear your green!

May your blessings outnumber
The Shamrocks that grow
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.
