St. Patrick’s Day

“Who day and night must scramble for a living, feed their wife and children, say their daily prayers? Who has the right as master of the house to have the final word at home? Tradition!” Actually, it’s the Papas, but that’s from Fiddler on the Roof. I don’t know why that popped into my brain, probably because Joeaux just sang it. It is all about traditions for this week. Because sometime during this week, you may be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, at least in the United States. We were discussing the origins of St Patrick’s Day. The origin of St. Patrick’s Day we came up with was, actually, green beer. I could remember before I walked in, I would go on a pub crawl. I know that’s hard to imagine, isn’t it? I would go on the pub crawl and we would go from bar to bar, drinking our fill of green beer.

Green Tradition

After I walked in, I had no desire to do that. That tradition in my life was over. It’s obviously on St. Patrick’s Day, and it’s tradition to wear green, have green around you. I have green; otherwise, you get pinched. Now again, I don’t know where that tradition came from. I would ask you somewhere on this page. In the chat, to put that in, if you know the answer to where the tradition of pinching if you didn’t wear green or even where St. Patrick came from.

What’s Your Family Tradition?

I mean, was St Patrick the patron saint of green beer? I don’t know. Every culture has certain traditions that they hang onto; the tradition of St. Patrick’s Day or having a candlelight service on Christmas Eve. What’s your family tradition? We had a family tradition of getting together with a family of a Memorial weekend, July 4th weekend, and Labor Day weekend. We had the family tradition of decorating graves on Memorial Day, and it was to honor those that had passed before us. So every family has traditions. I want to know where those traditions came from. I want to know their origin.

Share Your Traditions

For this week, you are my history buffs. I’m asking you for a favor. Can you enlighten me as to where the history of the celebration of St Patrick’s Day came from? I don’t really think it was about stale beer that went green in the container. That’s what Karl said. I don’t really know that it was after a Patron Saint that people would celebrate in some capacity. I want to know where that tradition came from. And, I’d like to know what traditions your family has that you love. If you want to let go of some things, you can name a few traditions you don’t love. So that’s your call. For this week, talk to me about your family traditions. “Tradition…Tradition.” I don’t know the rest of the words. I was in this show. I don’t remember.  Namaste, y’all. Namaste. Be sure to leave us your thoughts on our Facebook post or in our new Adironnda Family of Love Facebook Group. If you’re not on there yet, then why not? 🙂
