HAPPY
ST. PATRICK'S
DAY

You don't have to be Irish
to celebrate St. Patty's Day.

It's a phenomenon here
how many people find their "Irish roots"
on this day . . .

wearing something green,
giving gifts of shamrocks
(or green teddy bears!),
sporting outlandish hats and shirts,
sipping Irish tea and crumpets,
chugging pints of Guinness
(or green beer -- really!)
singing Irish songs
and greeting the Spring
with a wink and a drink.

So whether you're from the 'old sod' or not,
here's an Irish toast for you this fine day:

"Dance as if no one were watching,
Sing as if no one were listening,
And live every day as if it were your last."

Cheers!
