"Wherever you go and whatever you do, May the luck of the Irish be there with you." 

Happy Saint Patricks Day! I hope you have a fun one. What traditions you do? In my family we eat Lucky Charms for breakfast, scatter trails of chocolate candies around the house for the kids, drink root beer, and dance a jig to Irish music.

Last year we made up silly limerics about each member of the family—including the dog! When my kids were younger, my husband used to make a trap for the leprecon and bait it with gold candy. He'd make little foot prints around the trap and the candy would be gone and there would be a note from the leprecaun saying, "better luck next year! or that he wouldn't bring candy next year if we tried to trap him."


  1. Corned beef and gabbage for us here in South Florida. Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day!

  2. Those are awesome traditions. We just pinch the kid that forgets to wear green. One year we had an all green breakfast, but it didn't go over well. Green milk isn't very appetizing.
