Had St Pats dinner at sister's house last night...it was niece's bday. Today went to sons' rugby feis and came home...corned beef has been in crockpot all afternoon. Cabbage is roasting in oven, potatoes are boiling...it's round 2!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
Dave, that's something I love about the whole thing.
Today we'll celebrate the Irish culture as though it was ours. Then on Monday, lots of Italians will celebrate the feast of St. Joseph (though I'm still not sure how he ties in to Italy.) Then on Cinco de Mayo, we'll all celebrate the Mexican heritage. I love the fact that we celebrate all these different cultures, regardless of whether or not they happen to be the ones we grew up with.
BTW...I just read that St Joseph's Day is also Fathers Day in Italy, as well as a few other countries.
Tomorrow one of the teachers will bring in lots of pastries for lunch. They all look so good.
But (hidden confession time: ) Italian last name or not, I have absolutley no desire to eat the Italian pastries. I hate cannolis and all the other goodies. (Give me a loaf of bread and some butter, and look out. But I'm not into Italian pastries.)
A very Happy St. Joseph's Day to all those celebrating!
