St. Patrick's DaySt. 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.

 

 

St.Patrick's DayMay 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.

 

Irish Toasts

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.

Roger - exactly. Cheers to you.

Hi Alexandra - good for you. There's plenty of room in our lives to celebrate when we can - and I love the many reasons to do so...

I really love the quote - regardless of where it comes from. Hits the spot - as does Guinness. :)

Hi Debb - I will have a Guinness, but only one, for tradition's sake. But then it's going to be Jamesons (NOT Bushmills, thank you very much - and if you're Irish, you know the difference!)

Hey Dick, I do know the difference. Catholic or protestant - the Irish love their whiskey.

Debb,

Everyone is Irish oin St. Paddy's Day and the Irish would not have it any other way. Guinness on draft is some really good stuff to drink in my opinion..

Excellent post as we prepare to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.  It would be a good exercise to try all of the toasts.

Hi Debb,

We might have the same type of dwarf frogs as I bought my wife this present a couple years ago as a joke for our anniversary. She was not overly amused. I take care of the frogs. They live in a small plastic self contained envirnonment and all I do is periodically change the water and feed then twice a weekl. See great minds think alike and that could be scary for your husband to think like me! LOL..

Bob - I'll bet they are the same. Although, my daugther bought mine for me - and she purchased a small aquarium. Ha. My daughter in law has the small eco-plastic home - and her frogs are doing great after several years. :)

Debb, this is one THICK beer!    Not being a beer drinker, I did try one in Dublin, took 2 hours, and now can say I have tried!   But, that was enough!

Ha. Well at least you tried Joan. Perhaps it's an acquired taste?
