St. Patrick's Day - Raise a Pint of Guinness
Get ready to celebrate with leprechauns, shamrocks and beer - St. Patrick's Day is nearly here. The Irish holiday is Sunday March 17th, 2013. The best part, you don't need to be of Celtic heritage to take enjoy the fun.
This wee-bit-of-Irish lass ( my mother's dad emigrated from Ireland) will NOT be drinking any green beer. No Irish person I know would foul a beer with coloring. Instead, I'll raise a pint of Guinness and wish for good cheer.
Here are a few of my favorite Irish toasts to inspire your inner poet on St. Patrick's Day.
May you have warm words
on a cold evening
A full moon on a dark night.
And the road downhill
all the way to your door.
May the face of every good news,
and the back of every bad news
Be towards us.
May the strength of three
be in your journey.
Here's to me, and here's to you,
And here's to love and laughter –
I'll be true as long as you,
And not one moment after.
For every wound, a balm.
For every sorrow, cheer.
For every storm, a calm.
For every thirst, a beer.
