Snow, losing teeth, baby animals, an accomplishment...
and certainly, holidays!
However, St. Patrick's Day has not exactly been an important one for me. Clearly, Easter & Christmas are the best because of their religious significance. Others have a cultural base or a historical base that resonates with us. But St. Patrick's Day?
When I recently stated that I'm not Irish & feel no connection to this holiday, my father corrected me that I actually do have an Irish heritage. Even so, I am not connected to this holiday!
~St. Patrick's Day books from the library, (always about pots of gold & leprechauns).
~Reading an online article about who St. Patrick actually was.
~Making & eating real Irish food as well as St. Patrick's Day-themed food.
~Making shamrock crafts.
No suggestions on how to have a meaningful celebration of St. Patrick's Day.
So I came up with a missionary theme for this St. Patrick's Day. It makes sense. St. Patrick was a missionary who converted many Irish people.
