I admit it. I have always loved the magic of holidays. I was probably the last kid to stop believing in the Easter Bunny and Santa. I refused to let practicality and peer pressure squelch my magical childhood. (To be honest, I still believe in Santa.) So, it is only natural that I seize any opportunity to infuse a little fairy dust into everyday life, especially the holidays (with a little help from my creative hubby).
I am not Irish, but why let that spoil the fun? I say, any excuse to celebrate with your family is a good excuse to me.
Personally, I will be wearing green and listening to U2 today to celebrate.
My kids, on the other hand, deserve a bit more fun.
Luckily, the mischievous leprechaun visited our house last night. He hid the Lucky Charms in the pot cupboard. He put the bowls and spoons in the oven. Luckily, he didn't turn the oven on...
He turned our milk green. He left green sprinkles behind in our cereal bowls just to remind us of his visit.
He gave my boys something fun to talk about for the rest of the day.
Happy St. Patrick's Day to all of my friends and family, Irish or not!
