“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!”
– Irish Blessing
The legend of St. Patrick has become lost amidst the blur of green beer and leprechauns gone wild. But, Patrick was a real person born in – of all places – England around A.D. 390. Whether he heard voices in a dream and ultimately drove snakes out of Ireland is all part of the mythology surrounding such historical figures. Still, it makes for some great storytelling!
