Taste of Ireland

March 7th, 2013 by James Hood

Irish_cloverMarch 17th is celebrated around the world as St. Patrick’s Day.

It was originally created as a Christian feast day to celebrate St. Patrick (patron saint of Ireland) who brought Christianity to the island nation. It is said that St. Patrick used the shamrock (3-leafed clover) to teach the native people about the Holy Trinity.

More commonly, the day celebrates Irish culture, heritage and food.

New York City has its famous parade with pipe bands and step dancers, and Chicago goes so far as to dye the river green.

Where’s the Love this Valentine’s Day?!

A quick review of the Wikipedia entry about Valentine’s Day provides a daunting view for the holiday’s future. Oh, there will always be a Valentine’s Day, but where’s the love?!

Valentine’s Day has been associated with romance and lovers since the Middle Ages. By the 15th century, it was common practice to send flowers, candy and hand-written notes or cards with heartfelt expressions of love.

According to the U.S. Greeting Card Association, an estimated 15 million e-valentines were sent online in 2010. We can only hope that most of those were sent by grandparents to their grandkids or friend to friend… co-worker to co-worker.

Where’s the love in “Have a Smurfy Valentine’s Day”?
