I’ve always loved St. Patrick’s Day. Traditional Irish foods and an excuse to get together with friends, coupled with the first hints of spring make it easy to feel festive this time of year.
Since having kids St. Patrick’s Day has become even more fun. We spend time making crafts, green desserts and play leprechaun tricks in the weeks leading up to St. Patrick’s Day.
