I am not a fan of St. Patrick’s Day being on Saturday. I guess it’s probably pretty convenient for most people but I don’t celebrate it the way most people do. As a matter of fact, I didn’t celebrate it at all this year.
I like holidays. I love having an excuse to do fun things for the kids. It’s not usually anything big, just small, out of the ordinary things to celebrate a day. They love it.
For some reason I didn’t do a thing to celebrate today. No green milk, no shamrock decorations, no corned beef and cabbage, no nothing. The big boys did wear a green shirt that had a clover on it because they still fit from last year. Me, I didn’t wear any green all day. When Big Boy tried to pinch me for it I pulled out the classic mother “Don’t you dare!” line and he didn’t dare.
Burger King even had free fries today with green ketchup. I’m all about free things and I didn’t go.
Is there a Scrooge for St Patrick’s Day because I think I’m it.

I was trying so hard to think of something fun for Tal to do to celebrate St. Patty’s. We ended up at a pet store to see the “green” lizards. It was freaky. We were there for about 5 minutes then Tal saw a giant fake spider and started screaming (literally) and we ran out. We made green sugar cookies instead. Celebrating holidays is all about treats for me and I’m afraid that is exactly what I’m teaching Tal.
I’m so not fun on holidays like this. I’m not irish so ….
