Happy St. Patrick's Day!


In whatever you do, or wherever you travel today, may you have a wonderful and happy day!

Last week I invited you to celebrate along with me today, and in honour of this day I have posted three of my own posts in celebration of Ireland, and on my blog 'Over thy dead body' there's a St. Patrick monument to have a look at, so I hope you'll have a peek. I'm raising my morning tea in a toast to the following bloggers who are joining in the celebration:

Aillin of Australian Genealogy Journeys. Aillin's ancestry is more than 60% Irish and she has posted a lovely tribute to her Irish Ancestors, including a word cloud showing where in Ireland they lived, and an awesome YouTube Video featuring a huge flash mob of Irish Dancers at Sydney's Central Station. I Love It! I hope you'll stop by and wish Aillin a Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Happy Birthday Wishes and Happy St. Patrick's Day to Colleen at Leaves & Branches. Colleen loves St. Patrick's Day, and her Irish heritage, and "has the freckles to prove it". Please stop by and wish Colleen a Happy Day in all ways for her birthday and St. Paddy's Day.

Mary at Mary's Musings is out of town all week, and said she probably won't have computer access, but wanted to join in the fun. Now that's dedication. I hope you'll stop by her blog and wish her a Happy St. Patrick's day.

Carol at Reflections from The Fence sends out Happy St. Patrick's Day wishes. I hope you'll stop by her blog and give her good wishes in return.

In honor of St. Patrick's Day Karen at Genealogy Frame of Mind is sharing "a bit on my early "Irish" ancestors - the Regan's of Surry County, Virginia". Stop by Karen's blog and wish her and the Regans a Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Heather Rojo of Nutfield Genealogy stopped by to say: "In Londonderry/Derry, Northern Ireland there will be a parade at 2:30 with the theme "World Myths". Here in their sister city of little Londonderry, NH, our high school marching band will be honored in the New York City St. Patrick's parade (not such a little band- over 400 members fresh back from the 2011 Pasadena Rose Bowl and the 2010 Chinese Olympics!)." New York City is celebrating the 250th anniversary of St. Patrick's Day parades; what a great time for them to participate. Pop by and wish Heather a Happy St. Patrick's Day.

If you want to find out more about the New York parade, and watch live streaming video, visit their website New York City St. Patrick's Day Parade .

Happy St. Patrick's Day one and all!

I'll conclude this post with an old Irish Blessing:

May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
Thanks to the Graphics Fairy for the beautiful image.


  1. What a lovely, generous, celebratory post! Wonderful job, well done, and a Very Happy St. Patrick's Day to You!!

  2. Thanks for the post about Londonderry on your blog today. We don't forget the "Old Sod" around here! Erin go braugh!

  3. Happy St Patrick's Day to you Jennifer, thanks for the mention, even after I fessed up to not being able to find any Irish to write about in my past (hubbie's sole lineage is a brick wall, see last years post at Reflections for that info)

    Cheerieo - -

  4. Oh, I'm a little late to the party, but Happy St Patrick's Day to you and yours!

  5. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you, Jennifer. For the longest time I thought (because my father said so) that we had no Irish heritage in our lines. I found out I was wrong a few years ago and wrote a small post about it today ( I hope you have a great day.

  6. And a Happy St Patrick's Day to you also!

  7. Happy St. Patrick's Day, Jennifer! I'm so glad to see you celebrating!

  8. Jennifer...thanks for the mention in your blog. I'd forgotten (short memory) that I had e-mailed you to make sure I got in on all the fun :)
