Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!

So it’s a fun excuse for another batch of cute kids holiday jokes, kid friendly puns and riddles!! It’s also very GREEN, my 2020 mom blog goal was to go green, so of course we are celebrating.
Brief History of St. Patricks Day
“Saint Patrick’s Day, feast day (March 17) of St. Patrick, patron saint of Ireland. Born in Roman Britain in the late 4th century, he was kidnapped at the age of 16 and taken to Ireland as a slave. He escaped but returned about 432 to convert the Irish to Christianity.” From Encyclopedia Britannica
It was Irish immigrants in the United States who transformed St. Patrick’s Day into the holiday celebrating all things Irish.
