The Luck of the Irish
Wednesday, March 17, 2010
My last name is Sullivan, and I am Irish and I love St. Patrick's Day. As a child I would force my mother to dress me from head to toe in all shades of green (mint green shamrock socks, a forest green tutu and an electric green cardigan were among the mix). Upon flinging the door open to go to school, my brother and I would discover that the leprechauns had left a pot of gold (chocolate, but gold to a 6 year old no less)coins on our front porch and a note that dared us to follow the rainbow to find other trinkets and treasures that had been left for us around our yard. I give my parents a lot of credit for making holidays so magical for us kids and I might begin my own silverlake neighborhood treasure hunt before you know it...
Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone!
