St. Patrick’s Day is the one day of the year where people across the world get drunk, kiss strangers, dress like leprechauns and pretend to be Irish.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day 2016
St. Patrick’s Day has always been special and as we gather with family and friends to celebrate the greatest, I think back to my past and all the fun times shared on this fine day.
Growing up in a very Irish family with Irish heritage on all sides, St. Patrick’s Day was always something to look forward to from wearing green and pinching those who don’t to kissing strangers in bars all the way to eating the traditional corned beef and cabbage dinners.
When I think back through my fondest memories, I always picture my Grandpa who would don his hand knit green tie that was his fathers tie brought straight from Ireland with this little green pipe and Irish linen handkerchief with his blue blazer. His name was Patrick too which made it even better and he would walk around smiling with his pipe clenched in his teeth saying Irish proverbs and singing songs like Danny Boy and When Irish Eyes Are Smiling. He loved St. Patrick’s Day and made sure everybody had fun buying drinks and smiling all day.
So on this fine St. Patrick’s Day I wanted to share some of my all time favorite St. Patrick’s Day quotes from him.
If you’re enough lucky to be Irish…You’re lucky enough!
May your troubles be less and your blessings be more and nothing but happiness come through your door.
May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow, and may trouble avoid you wherever you go.
May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light.
May good luck pursue you each morning, noon and night.
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face and rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again…
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
A good friend is like a four leaf clover:
Hard to find and lucky to have!
May the sun shine all day long, everything go right and nothing wrong. May those you love bring love back to you and may all the wishes you wish come true!
May God give you , for every storm, a rainbow, for every tear, a smile, for every care, a promise, and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh, a sweet song, and an answer for each prayer.
May you always be blessed with walls for the wind, a roof for the rain, a warm cup of tea by the fire, laughter to cheer you, those you love near you and all that your heart might desire.
May love and laughter light your days, and warm your heart and home. May god and faithful friends be yours, wherever you may roam. May peace and plenty bless your world with joy that long endures. Mall all life’s passing seasons bring the best to you and yours!
May the blessings of each day be the blessings you need! Now go out and grab yourself a green brew or a shot of Jameson. Enjoy a beer, kiss an Irish man or woman and go boogie till they come out your nose! Have fun and most of all, be safe!
