I am too tired to do any actual REAL research into St. Patricks Day, however you can read about it here. It was a holiday, just like all the rest.
Every St. Patrick's Day I toast to my grandparents who loved each other the best they knew how, and to a wonderful life they are hopefully having now.
Don't forget to wear green on St. Patrick's Day!
I didn't drink, well with the exception of a Bud Light Lime- hey what can I say, it is all I had in the house. Of course having to work at 7:45am the next day kinda puts a damper onto the whole "let's get drunk and stupid" mantra.
What is the protocol for what a person is supposed to do on the anniversary of the day they were supposed to get married? Yes four years ago, 2007 I was supposed to get married on St. Patrick's Day. It is my maternal grandparents anniversary as well. I thought it was cute and romantic. So what am I supposed to do that day? Get drunk? Toast the ex who is married now? I am not bitter, I am the one who broke off everything, I am never sorry that I did not marry him. I would be have two kids by now if I had married him, and I would have never gone to grad school in Syracuse, NY and have all the wonderful friends I have out there. So I never focus on what I could have had except for the day before and the day of St. Patrick's Day. All's well that ends well! :)
