Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

St. Patrick’s Parade

This seems to be an appropriate time to write about St. Patrick’s Day, so I will.  Today is the national holiday of Ireland, and celebrates the life of Saint Patrick, a Christian missionary who lived in the 4th and 5th centuries.  It began as a religious holiday, and became a public holiday in 1903.  The first St. Patrick’s Day Parade was held in Boston in 1737, but the longest-running and largest parade is in New York (today, in fact), which has run every year since 1762, and today attracts two million spectators and 150,000 marchers.  And green is the color of choice, with a river dyed green in Chicago, a canal in Indianapolis, and fountains in Savannah.  Even those not of Irish ancestry participate in the festivities (in fact, I’ve gone to several “St. Paddy’s Day” parties in the past few years, and I’ve got only one connection – McCracken – and that name hails from Northern Ireland).  So regardless of your background, enjoy!

Feel free to leave a comment, and please come back often – I write and post every day!  And if you like what I have to say and how I say it, you’ll probably enjoy my novels as well.  They’re listed below, and you can read more about them on my improved website, designed and built by my son Don, http://www.randolphmase.com.  On my site, you’ll also find excerpts of my books that you can read – please check it out!
