Happy St. Paddy's Day - Let's hunt for leprechauns

Not being Irish or Catholic (or of any saint praising religion), it's sometimes strange to think of the historical, cultural and religious significance of Saint Patrick's Day. That reflection usually only lasts a few minutes for me...and then I don the green clothes and have fun with all the fun and funky traditions. Lynette's hosting book club at our house tonight, but I might take the kids into the back room for some Darby O'Gill and the Little People. Or maybe we'll go hunting for leprechauns and snag a pot of gold.

Whatever your reason for enjoying the holiday, toast some praises to all things Irish and have fun.

Thanks also to Kovidude for turning me on to this great story of a "real life leprechaun" in Alabama.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! You certainly don't need to be Irish to enjoy it.

I'm proof of that.
