happy st. patrick's day

A tidbit of information for you: did you know that the four-leaf clover and the irish shamrock are NOT the same thing? It's true- it should be the three-leafed variety that graces your day. I know! The things you learn.


  1. I did learn that today when trying to figure out what St. Patrick's Day is so I could tell Connor. The shamrock is supposedly what St. Patrick used to teach the Trinity, thus three leaves.

  2. ... and it comes from some old Celtic religious thing too.. so like Mexico you get your Catholic stuff and your mystic/pagan stuff all mixed up together in a fun and interesting mix. :)
