Great for the Irish...But What about the rest of us?

St. Patrick's Day is a neat way of remembering all our Irish brethren. It also happens right before Spring and gives us all a chance to celebrate having survived another Winter! I like St. Patrick's Day. From what I understand, there are green rivers flowing in Chicago and Savannah. There are parades and all sorts of Green related things going on. I am a fan.

Here is the problem though, what about those of us that are not Irish? What about the rest of us? For instance, I am 1/2 Dutch. There should be a tulip day celebration! We could all wear clunky wooden shoes. We could go around all day holding our breath pretending the dikes are about to let go. We could celebrate the food of the Netherlands...Potatoes, and um...

Ok, I am really proud of my Dutch heritage. We have windmills and things, but after thinking it through, I think I will just celebrate with the Irish and be done with it. They seem to already have worked out all the kinks and have the process down Pat!

Dutch Celebrations

Peter,  I posted a photo of Bob and I celebrating in Holland when the European Cup CHampionships were played a couple of years ago.  They do like to celebrate.  Here we just tried to fit in as best we could. 

Oh by the way I think the real reason the Dutch don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day...they don't have to, they have...

AMSTERDAM   (Disney World for Adults).  One of my favorite favorite cities in the world!
