Quote of the day

Do two people ever see the same rainbow? No. As the eyes of two people cannot occupy the same place in space at the same time, each observer sees a different rainbow. Why? Well, because the raindrops are constantly in motion so its appearance is always changing. Each time you see a rainbow, it is unique in its own spectacular way!  

Legend says that each leaf of the clover means something:
  the first is for hope, the second for faith, the third for love and the fourth for luck.
St. Patrick's Day is celebrated on March 17, his religious feast day and the anniversary of his death in the fifth century. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over a thousand years. On St. Patrick's Day, which falls during the Christian season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. Lenten prohibitions against the consumption of meat were waived and people would dance, drink and feast—on the traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage.
Leprechauns usually take the form of old men who enjoy partaking in mischief. Their trade is that of a cobbler or shoemaker. They are said to be very rich, 
having many treasure crocks buried during war-time.
According to legend, if anyone keeps an eye fixed upon one, he cannot escape, 
but the moment the gaze is withdrawn, he vanishes.

  It is time to start thinking about St. Patrick's Day!!!  I love this holiday!!!  I love the children out looking for a four leaf clover during recess.  I am also a fan of trying to find a Leprechaun and his gold at the end of the rainbow.  I still participate in this holiday by wearing GREEN so that I won't be pinched.
