Reuben Sandwich Reminds Me St Patrick’s Day Is Only 5 Days Away

Last night while I was eating my Reuben sandwich, I realized that St Patrick’s Day was just a few days away. I love St Patrick’s day. What’s not to love about a holiday that promotes drinking larger quantities of green beer. Actually I don’t like regular beer – so I not so sure about green beer – but the pub crawl participants seems to adore it. I love St Patrick’s day because of the positive nature of the holiday. Four leaf clovers – shamrocks (good luck), the color green (money and prosperity) and corned beef and cabbage or bacon and cabbage (just good eats). This is a holiday that focuses on fun and optimism with festivals, parades and “Kiss Me I’m Irish” shirts. To celebrate the holiday many people send potted shamrocks to spread luck to friends and family members. I personally like to send and receive flower arrangements with Bells of Irleand instead – shamrocks remind me of a weed called oxalis that drives me crazy in our greenhouse. Here is an example of the kind of arrangement I send my folks on St Patrick’s Day.

After all Easter is only a fews day after St Patrick’s Day this year.

Of course florists across the nation have some wonderful ideas when it comes to arranging flowers for St Patrick’s Day. In fact, if any florist wants to send me a picture of their St Patrick’s Day flower designs,  I’ll post them on the blog. We might even get readers to vote on the best one.

You have five days till the fun and festivities of St Patrick’s Day. So plan to have a good one – I plan on it.

If you have a special way of celebrating St Patrick’s Day let me know. I’m always curious about how others celebrate. You never know when you’ll discover something great.
