Happy Irish Heritage Day!
As I've mentioned before, pagans are ambivalent about celebrating St. Patrick's Day because St. Pat "drove the snakes out of Ireland" (i.e. ended paganism in the Emerald Isle) and we still resent it. However, I have no trouble celebrating Irish Heritage Day on this date! I've got a bit of the blarney in meself, after all.
In addition to sharing some Irish LOLs with you, I want to post this St. Paddy's Day limerick that my sister wrote especially for me last year. As you can see, she and I share a similar poetic sensibility and appreciation for the finer things in life:
There once was a man from Dover
Whose dating life was over.
He tried and he tried,
But finally he cried:
"Will no one stroke me clover?"
So with that image fresh in your minds, here's some more LOLs --
In all seriousness, there's no accent I like better than the lilt of the Auld Sod. So musical and beautiful to the ear!
