The Little Holidays

I am a fan of the “little holidays.” They are low pressure with high fun potential. Many of them come with interesting history and even geography lessons.

Today, we read Tomie dePaola’s Patrick: Patron Saint of Ireland. ( We had a good discussion of truth versus legend and how legends often grow out of a grain of truth.

We watched a beautiful tour of Ireland on YouTube. Wouldn’t you know — the most impressive part was the number of times beer was mentioned! We got a good laugh out of that and enjoyed some gorgeous landscapes and historical sites.

Dinner tonight is shepherd’s pie and Irish soda bread. It is a joy to make little celebrations into happy memories.
