My family makes potato bread and or potato pancakes, not sure that has anything to do with the Saint, but likely moreso family tradition.

I considered making a corned beef this year but i'm not sure I like the taste of it, I will make cabbage soup though.

In this area of Texas it certainly is not celebrated other than "Come get your green beer" around town which I think is a little sad, I love history though.

lollollol!!!
i hate it, when they are brewing depending on the wind, you can smell it at my mams house.

its a day off school here, infact my sons school is off for the week.
there will be a st patricks day festival for 3 days in the city centre, with a parade on the the day, its mostly for the tourists. towns and cities overr the country all have small parades. irish dancing and diddlydidle music everywhere. we will prob have a coddle to eat, but we have one every week anyway!

My sister always makes corned beef and cabbage as well as Rubens. She also makes Irish Soda Bread... with raisins. oh yum! I make and take colcannon and it's always a hit. She has lots of other good things too. Different members of the family don their green apparel, blinking baubles or socks. LOL She also finds a special "green" martini to serve.

I love Stout, and I wish there was Irish dancing and diddlydidle music everywhere here !
There will be here...no school either.

the neighborhood parishes have a special mass with music and breakfast for all of the neighbors in the morning.

Lots of dancing this week. Maeve will be dancing at the Airport for Aer Lingus in the terminal---a very different kind of venue. The usual resturants, pubs and a hall party for a charity thing.

There is usually a dance-off inthe Faniuel Hall market place wher the hip-hop crowd goes against the irish step dancers---that is fun.

Big parade on Sunday..lots of house parties.
