Hi there. My Mom tells me that today is something called St. Patrick's Day. She says it is an important holiday to celebrate the patron Saint of Ireland. I have NO idea what that means...but I think that means he was really important.
Anyway, Mom says people celebrate St. Patrick's Day by wearing green, holding parades, lots of signs and posters with green shamrock leaves and a funny little person she calls a leprechaun. Mom is part Irish, so this is an extra special day for her.
I was worried that she was going to make me wear another stupid hat until she told me people sometimes eat and drink things that are colored green. Well I LOVE to eat things that are green. Mom must have known how I would react because as soon as she was done telling me all about St. Patrick's Day she gave me a bunch of cilantro to eat.
I've never met St. Patrick but we can celebrate him every single day if it means I get cilantro!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
