This week our question comes from Betty Bolté, author of Samantha's Secret, a historical romance set during the American Revolution. This is the third book in her series set in South Carolina and releases April 21, 2015.
If you've hopped over from the fabulous J.J. Devine, welcome. Make sure to hop back to visit with her if you missed her!
The question: Do I celebrate St. Patrick's Day and/or how I'd like to?
In a word: No. I do not regularly celebrate St. Patrick's Day. I have two kids in school, both hubby and I work full-time plus and the teachers don't recognize St. Patty's Day as a homework holiday.
Would I like to celebrate? Hell yes!
Let's go with my top three ways to celebrate St. Patrick's Day:
3. Having a pint of Guinness or two fingers of Jameson in a small pub in County Kerry or County Cork surrounded by locals having a good time.
2. Visit St Patrick's Church of Ireland Cathedral in County Armagh. While the church itself has been destroyed and rebuilt many times since it was founded by the saint himself in 445 A.D., it's the ground where St. Patrick walked and preached.
1. Waking up to a traditional Irish breakfast in an Irish bed-n-breakfast. What could be better than breathing in the moist fresh air on a soft morning, the plaintive bleating of lambs on the breeze.
An Old Irish Blessing
May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
For everyone who is partying, enjoy one for me!
Now on to the ravishing Raine Balkera, contemporary author. Can't wait to see how she celebrates this holiday!
