I don't really celebrate St. Patrick's Day with my children. Last week, we did read a book about St. Patrick. My children are wearing green today by their own choice. That, however, is the extent of our celebration. I'm not really a stick-in-the-mud; I just don't like what the holiday has become. The focus is as much on drinking as on anything else. I've decided instead to celebrate the first day of Spring with our children.
Sunday is the first day of Spring in the United States. We'll have our first cook-out to celebrate. I'm still working out the details; but, we'll probably bbq some hamburgers, have some potato salad, and maybe some corn on the cob from the freezer that we picked together last summer. Hopefully, it will be a nice day to be outside.
We're also going to cut flowers out of colored paper and maybe color some flowers with crayons. We'll decorate the house with these to make our rooms pretty and bright. I'll also bring in a few blooms from the garden to enjoy.
I'm sure my Honey will be out digging soon!
How will you celebrate?
