St. Patrick’s Day has always been dear to my heart.
Growing up in Ireland, it was all about being able to watch the parade in our town.
The parade would have local kids, the local brass band, and certainly ten tractors.
We’d wear a big clump of shamrock. We’d go pick the shamrock from rocks the day before, and soak it in water over night.
What’s your plan for St. Patrick’s Day this year? Do you attend a local parade? Do you meet up with old Irish friends and family? Please leave your reply below.
P.S. If you’d like to hear how “Lá ‘le Pádraig” is pronounced (that’s how to say “St. Patrick’s Day” in Irish), then have a look at our free bitesize lesson for St Patrick’s Day.
