Welcome to my March blog. Before I say Happy St. Patrick’s Day, I’d like to say a Happy Birthday to not only myself, but also my best friend (born a day after me but technically only 7 hours younger than me, when we were younger we would have sleepovers staying awake for my birthday then waking up really early for her birthday, our parents were never amused!) I’d also like to wish my mum a very Happy Birthday too – a second birthday in lockdown for her!
This Month is St. Patrick’s Day – but where did this holiday originate from? Well, after a Google search I found this – St. Patrick’s Day (also known as St. Paddy’s Day) started as a religious celebration in the 17th century to commemorate the life of Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. This “Feast Day” always took place on the anniversary of Patrick’s death, which was believed to be March 17, 461 AD. St Patrick’s Day is celebrated in many parts of the world, especially by Irish communities and organizations. Many people wear an item of green clothing on the day.
One of my birthday traditions is to have a special birthday breakfast which includes (gluten free) buttermilk pancakes with fresh fruit, clotted cream and maple syrup. We have these pancakes on special occasions like Christmas and Birthdays. I obviously can’t do much this year because we’re still in lockdown and have to “stay home”, the only thing I plan is to do, is go on a long walk with my family and my dog Leon. Proper celebrations can happen once we are out of lockdown.
We can’t leave this blog without celebrating St. Patrick’s Day – I think it would be fitting to celebrate with a cocktail, well here’s a video of how to make 12 cocktails… enjoy! I want them all.
I’ve not been lucky enough to personally see hares boxing, but I have seen a lot of hares on my walks recently.
I hope you have enjoyed my March blog. I thought I’d include a horoscope for both Pisces and Aries below. Happy Birthday to all the March babies! Next month we will spring into Spring and Easter!
