Hello sweet friends !
When I was growing up in Astoria-Queens, NY it was an Irish and Italian neighborhood mostly and of course the Irish friends celebrated St. Patrick's Day, not only wearing green, but in the Irish pubs, the food etc.
Then some other days the Italians were celebrating St. Gennaro's Day and so I grew up wearing green and wearing buttons of "Kiss me I'm Irish."
Some other times we were celebrating St. Gennaro's and another Saint, I forget which name, lol...right in the neighborhood near my house, where they closed the street and there were great things to do and wonderful Italian food as well. Anyway, what I want to explain is that St. Pat's Day is very familiar to me and it brings me so many memories from my school days and even "my first bo" at 14 was Irish and his name was Bobby Riley, lol...
Wishing you dear Irish friends and everyone else too, as it is almost an all American festivity.
