Interesting Facts about St. Patrick's Day

St Patrick day is celebrated every year on March 17, the date of his death.




Patrick was  an aristocrat (a broad term that usually refers to people that are of a particular social order considered the highest social class of that society.)


He actually wasn't born in Ireland.



He was born in a village called BannavemTaberniae, which doesn't exist on any British maps today.


Patrick grew up in a Christian family, but as a young boy didn't show much interest in his religion.




At the age of 16, Patrick was kidnapped for 6 years by Irish raiders. There they had him working as a sheep herder.  Being lonely and scared, this made Patrick turn to his religion for comfort.


Patrick is said to have heard the voice of God telling him to leave Ireland.  He walked 200 miles to the Ireland coast and  took passage on a ship to Britain and his family. But he couldn't stop thinking of Ireland.



Patrick is said to have had a dream that an angel came to him, telling him to return to Ireland as…

Taking Advantage of the Warm Weather

What a beautiful day it was in the Northeast today.  It was a beautiful, sunny 70 degree day.  Luckily, my husband had the day off today, so we decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and headed down the shore.

We began our trip at a large indoor/outdoor flea market.  We strolled amongst the tables, looking at the sea of items for sale.  Honestly, a lot of it is pure junk, but it is amazing what some people are able to make from nothing.  I really wasn't looking for anything in particular.  I just liked browsing and strolling.  I did pick up a few antique pins for $1 each.  I have a weakness for pretty things.



After visiting the flea market we headed out to lunch at an Irish restaurant.  We had corned beef, cabbage and potatos and shepard's pie.  My husband wanted to share both because he couldn't decide which one he wanted.   I stuck to the corned beef and cabbage, since I am trying to eat more healthy.

After lunch we drove a few minutes to the shore to take …
