This was my St Patrick’s Day post from 2015. Wearing O’ the Green.
So, this year I thought I’d research it a tiny bit more. Here’s what I learned.
“Patrick isn’t really a Saint with a capital S, having never been officially canonized by Rome. And Patrick couldn’t have driven the snakes out of Ireland because there were never any snakes there to begin with.”
“Though he was not solely responsible for converting the island, Patrick was quite successful. He made missionary journeys all over Ireland, and it soon became known as one of Europe’s Christian centers. This, of course, was very important to fifth-century Christians, for whom Ireland was one of the “ends of the earth.”
But, he DID use the shamrock to explain the Trinity, right??
Well, according to this website, no. It was all just legends.
“There are several popular legends about how St. Patrick used the shamrock to explain the mystery of the Trinity.”
Being as how I wasn’t there, I am not gonna argue the point. I do think it’s a great illustration!
Alright, now on to my St Patrick’s Day stuff. You already saw my mantel.
Now, here’s my porch door, outside.
Porch door inside.
Front door, outside. Front door, inside.
And I also put one on Vanronica’s window, PP’s side. And immediately she said “Wheah’s baby _____(PPJr)’s??” Bless her heart, for being so sweet to her baby sister!! (Now, I gotta go take one down off the mantel, and tape it to the baby’s side!!)
Here’s some funny stuff I saw at the store.
I want these tights!! Of course, I’d have to wear them on my arms….. And the white fuzzy things are leg warmers!!! LOL
Ok, so that’s all the green I got going on today.
