I wrote this a few mornings ago as I sat with my son while he ate his breakfast. I was sipping on coffee, enjoying the beautiful morning just glad to have a warm day in front of me. Now, today, I see it is ever so gently snowing. It isn’t much snow, barely can see it, but it is there. I think I called it snow drizzle because it is so faint. 34 degrees fahrenheit right now. Two days ago it was almost seventy degrees fahrenheit. Just crazy weather this year. Anybody else done with winter and wish it would just go far away?
By the way, Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
Wearing of the green
On St Patrick’s Day it is customary to wear shamrocks and/or green clothing or accessories (the “wearing of the green”).
St Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish. This story first appears in writing in 1726, though it may be older. In pagan Ireland, three was a significant number and the Irish had many triple deities. The triple spiral symbol appears at many ancient megalithic sites in Ireland.
