March 17 is the traditional day to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. If you're interested in participating, but not quite sure how, check out this article I shared a couple of years ago: Irish Classics, Prompts, and Party Tips.

Some additional educational and fun holiday ideas include:
- Streaming Irish jigs and songs.
- Watching traditional Irish dance on YouTube or chrome cast to your TV.
- Adding green food dye to your short bread cookie recipes.
- Sewing or gluing crazy Green Irish hats, ties or belts using felt, ribbons, or fabrics.
- Cooking Irish Stew, scones and clotted cream or butter from scratch or from cans.
- Telling Irish fables about leprechauns, rainbows, pots of gold, or gnomes.
- Reminding your children about the “kiss of the blarney” and the folkloric tradition known today as “the gift of the gab”.
- Research the real St. Patrick.
How about you? Are you celebrating St. Patrick's Day? How are you spending this time?
Not Irish so I just sit back and watch the craziness. I was in England once for St. Patrick's Day and they certainly start drinking the green beer early!
