Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Today is a celebration of the Irish patron saint, Saint Patrick, and of the Irish heritage and culture in general. But of course not all of us are Irish, so after sending good wishes to your Irish friends, learn a little bit about your own heritage and decide one tradition you might like to carry on through your generation and share with the next. It could be family related, religious based, or cultural… a special meal, traditional event or place to visit, etc… there is no one right answer, whatever you feel is important and special to you.
As our cultures become more intertwined with greater diversity learning to live together, traditions can be lost along the way. There is something special about holding on to a celebrated part of our past to enjoy and commemorate.
Take a moment today to think of what you might like to carry on, and share it with someone special and/or write it in your calendar to make it happen.
…And may the luck of the Irish be with you today!
