As a girl who claims majority Irish ancestory, today is a day to celebrate heritage. Instead of imbibing with a bit of green beer or exciting revelry, I'm marking the occassion with either A) A Guiness or B) A nice glass of Irish Whiskey, neat. I don't know which will be the beverage of choice tonight.
Here's an Irish Blessing that my mother taught me when I was a little girl:
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And may you be in heaven a half hour before the devil knows you're dead.
