I just thought I’d do a quick little thing about my favorite holiday: St. Patrick’s Day. I love the fact that it is a “party atmosphere” kind of holiday. I love Celtic music. I just think Irish songs are so beautifully written, especially Irish traditional folk songs. Danny Boy is probably my favorite Irish song. Either that or Galway Girl. But Danny Boy is more “personal” to me. See, my grandfather, who my family called Da, his favorite song was Danny Boy. It is also the song my cousin sang at Da’s funeral. So in that regard, I have a personal, emotional connection to Danny Boy. I just love Celtic folk music. Now when people think of St. Patrick’s Day they inevitably think of drinking. And yes, that is a big part of it. But personally I just love the ambiance and atmosphere of the holiday. I love going to various bars and restaurants to hear all the local musical acts. I look forward to the Maryland Irish Festival in November every year. I do think it is weird that a festival celebrating the Irish is in November and St. Patrick’s Day is in mid -March. But moving on…for me, Saint Patrick’s Day is an excuse to celebrate my heritage…and drink Guinness. So what are your thoughts on St. Patrick’s Day?
