I invited my mom and Terry over for our St. Patricks Day dinner. I was a little nervous since I wasn't sure how anything was going to turn out but in the end I think it was a success.
One tradition we started was the clover under the plates. Everyone has a clover under their plate but only one had a 4 leaf clover. That person was Lucky enough to get to bless the food and they also get a special treat. This year it was a large bag of skittles and a package of Rolos. My mom was the lucky one this year. Before we ate we also learned who St. Patrick actually was and what he was known for. That was interesting to learn since I never really knew why we celebrated this day. Then it was time for dinner.
We then ended the night with some green candied popcorn and an Irish movie called Waking Ned Devine. It was an interesting movie.
We continued the festivities into the next day for family home evening. After our lesson we made St. Patrick Day pictures.
We look forward to celebrating more St. Patrick Days with our new traditions and more holidays to come. :)
