Thoughtless Thursday- St.Pats style!

Hi everyone!

And welcome to another week of the Thougtless thursday blog hop!
This hop is hosted by Ruckus the Eskie and us! Love is being owned by a husky!
Feel free to link up and join the fun! Give your brains a break and grab the badge.
No rules but it's nice to link back to your hosts and say hello!



So what I am posting today is not entirely thoughtless . . .OK so it's not at all thoughtless BUT it fits in with the hop because it is a post that I have been adding to over the last week and it has been sitting in my drafts. Therefore I did not need to put much thought into pushing the publish button today!







St. Patty's Day is right around the corner and as you can plainly see from my background and header, I love to celebrate this holiday! I have an Irish family, although i have never been to Ireland myself. It is a dream of mine to make it there some day!



With Patty's day coming up fast, i thought it would be nice to share some history behind the meaning of the day itself.

March 17th commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland.
Also this day celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. 

(I wonder if Mr. Patrick had a husky? And if so, was his dog tag the shape of a shamrock?)

The reason this holiday was set on March 17th is because that was the day of Saint Patrick's death. The patron saint of Ireland.

Did you know?
That the original color associated with St. Patty's Day was blue??
Yep blue! 
Over the years the color green (the color of the Shamrock) wedged it's way in and as far back as the 17th century, people have worn green ribbons, green clothes, green makeup, and of course, the green shamrock!

In the 1798 rebellion, Irish soldiers wore their uniforms ALL green to make a public statement.
They did this with the hope of catching the public's attention.



St. Patrick's Day is now a worldwide celebration. A time to wear green, a time to be social, a time to have fun, catch the parade, and the time to have a few nasty looking green beers!
But let's not forget the true reason we are celebrating. And why we even have this holiday. 
Saint Patrick.








The parades are the best! Ever since I was a child I have LOVED going to parades! 
The St. Patrick's parade is no different. My fav part is the Irish music. The bagpipes!



Hmmm. . . .so have any of you ever wondered what our pets would look like in kilts?

No? OK me neither, until this post! 

Curious? Check it out! 


Koda

Lexus
Mika




I think they look great!

Maybe I should enter them in the St. patty's Day parade? What do you think?

That's it for us today! Remember, have a Thoughtless Day!

  6. We've been seeing St Patty's Day around the web but hadn't even had a chance to look up the date. Will have to try to remember it's the 17th so we can acknowledge it even if we repeat last year's post. :)

    Happy Thoughtless Thursday!

    1. Aww that is so sweet!
      This holiday is always the time when I remember my Nanny as well. She had a thick Irish accent, and we miss her dearly.
      So glad you enjoyed!

  10. Ha ha, funny photos of the dogs in their kilts!! This was a good post, because I really didn't know the story behind the holiday. No Irish in me, but my Dad was born on St. Patty's Day, so he always liked to make a big deal about it! Ironically, my hubby actually has Irish in him, but his family never made much of the holiday.

      It's always fun to learn the true meaning behind holidays. And I learned a few new things about it myself when I did my research. So I really loved this post as well!
