WPC: St. Patrick’s Day

The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo challenge is I’d Rather Be…but of course blogging! After a hectic two, nearly three weeks of shifting, sifting and sorting I got my day to do what I enjoy most. But to be honest I am still rather exhausted and all frazzled with my thoughts on a million different corners. Providentially, I got a bunch of lovely snaps of the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in Dublin from my sister and brother-in-law who are currently staying there. So I didn’t have to travel, hunt or work too hard to join the fun. I am hoping you will like the photos too.

St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. He was a Christian missionary credited with taking Christianity to Ireland.

IMG-20180317-WA0035St. Patrick died on March 17, 461 and this day is celebrated the Roman Catholic feast day of the patron saint of Ireland.

IMG-20180317-WA0043It is also a celebration of Irish culture.

IMG-20180317-WA0042Bright and colorful aren’t they?

IMG-20180317-WA0045It was freezing cold and my sister caught a cold despite being wrapped in layers. But you wouldn’t be able to make that out looking at these young girls would you?

IMG-20180317-WA0037I thought this little boy was the best – what about you? It is also a custom to wear green on St. Patrick’s day. Apparently wearing green made one invisible to leprechauns, fairy creatures who would pinch anyone not wearing green. And those who don’t wear green do get pinched!

Thanks for visiting – all info from Google.

I think this post would also perfectly fit the #QOGUIN series. What you think?

  1. Happy St. Patrick’s day (belated) and head off to the pub after the parade is over. Your sister took great pictures. Pity in England we do not celebrate St, George’s day like Irish do St, Patrick’s Day and Scots do St.Andrew’s Day.
    At least it was not snowing in Dublin. We had a snowfall all day Yesterday. Brr.. it is cold.Hope your sister gets better soon,
