St. Patrick’s Day Traditions

Welcome to my stop on the St. Patrick’s Day Blog Hop!

My favorite color is green. Wearing green on St. Patrick’s Day is pretty much the only St. Patrick’s tradition I participate in. I know, I know. Where’s my Irish pride? Where’s my holiday spirit? Well, I don’t like beer, and I’m not really a fan of corned beef or cabbage…especially the smell.

Despite my aversion to the traditional food and drink of the holiday (green beer, anyone?), I do faithfully don my green clothing every St. Patrick’s Day. Even when I worked in a doctor’s office, I had a green scrub top that I wore to work. Hey, I didn’t want to get pinched! It hurts! Of course, I try not to overdo it on my green. I don’t want to look like Barney…

I would really like to find a leprechaun, though. Not one of the scary ones. A cute, friendly one, who will share his pot of gold with me.

Anyone know how to build a leprechaun trap? Bueller?
