HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!
Top o’ the mornin’ to one and all~
Magical Ireland – A gorgeous country filled with mystical castles, where the countryside’s graced with patchwork green rolling hills – scattered with frolicking, bleating sheep. And most importantly, an enchanting home blessed with heartwarming lovely people – just waiting and willing to make you feel right at home.
Legends tell the story of how St. Patrick was captured from his home in Great Britain, by Irish pirates and held hostage for 6 years to take care of animals. He escaped and returned home to his family, but eventually returned to Ireland as a missionary, where he traveled through northern and western parts of Ireland, and used the 3 leaf shamrock – to teach people about the Holy Trinity. To this day, the symbol of the shamrock is used to represent St. Patrick’s day.
Of course I can’t very well leave without sharing at least one fairy, or maybe two . . . . .and make sure you drop by soon when I share the fairy legend about the lovely May flowers, the lily of the valley.
