Happy St. Patrick's Day
As an person of Irish descent on both sides, I am tipping the hat to all the lads and colleens today.
In NL, there was a time when the island was 90% Irish and you can see and hear the remnants of this influence everywhere you go. It is in the language, the accent and even, the look of the geography is so similar to the emerald isle.
We are so Irish in NL, that it is a provincial holiday. Monday, most offices, schools and stores were closed because of the St. Patrick's Day holiday. They took the Monday instead of today.
Today, is the first meeting of our at-work rug hooking group lunch bunch. I will let you know how it goes!
