Happy St Patricks Day to all. Enjoy your parades / parties etc.....

And for anyone wanting to know a bit more about St Patrick ::

http://www.st-patricks-day.com/about_saintpatrick.asp

Saint Patrick was the patron saint and national apostle of Ireland who is credited with bringing christianity to Ireland. Most of what is known about him comes from his two works, the Confessio, a spiritual autobiography, and his Epistola, a denunciation of British mistreatment of Irish christians. Saint Patrick described himself as a "most humble-minded man, pouring forth a continuous paean of thanks to his Maker for having chosen him as the instrument whereby multitudes who had worshipped idols and unclean things had become the people of God."

For anyone wanting to see the parades from around Ireland it will be shown on the news ::

http://www.rte.ie/live/



Over half a million people are expected to line the streets of Dublin for the annual St Patrick's Day parade.

It's just one of the many events taking place around the country--and across the globe to mark the day.

Organisers are once again promising something special with this year's theme-'The Sky's the Limit'.

Here's an interesting link about Ireland's flag:

http://www.enchantedlearning.com/europe/ireland/flag.shtml

The Republic of Ireland's flag is made of three equal-sized rectangles of orange, white, and green (this type of flag is called a tricolor). The flag is twice as wide as it is tall. The green side is by the flagpole. This flag was first used in 1848.
The green color on the flag represents the native people of Ireland (most of whom are Roman Catholic). The orange color represents the British supporters of William of Orange who settled in Northern Ireland in the 17th century (most of whom are Protestant). The white in the center of the flag represents peace between these two groups of people.


Also, thanks to OA260 for the photo of the fireworks. I've never seen all green fireworks before. Smile

Happy St. Patricks Day  Smile

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

I live in Athens, Alabama; USA. Interestingly, country music (which is popular here) has it's origins in Irish Folk music.
