LET THE TRUE MARCH MADNESS BEGIN!
I'm so glad February is done and that March has 31 days! More days to celebrate. People don't understand what a great time of the year this is. Though, people who are Irish or Irish lovers do.
I don't have any children yet but I found this picture and want to claim her as my own. Look at this little cuteness celebrating St. Patrick's Day:
She's my inspiration this month.
So, what do you guys do for St. Patrick's Day?
For me, I'm going to walk into work on Monday wearing my new green dress wishing everyone a Happy March and a Merry St. Patrick's Day.
It's funny because so many people that I have met through the years remember me at this time of year purely because I'm Irish obsessed?
Does that resonate with anyone else?
It is such an honor.
One of the things I do this month is listen to Irish music and only Irish music.
Here's my suggestion:
Create these 3 Pandora stations and you will be all set for whatever Irish mood may fall upon you during March.
1) "Riverdance" -- this is when you're in a dancing mood.
2) "Flogging Molly" -- this is when you're in a rocking-out mood.
3) "Molly's Revenge" -- and this is when you're in a traditional mood.
I promise, it will cover all your Irish-music needs. But, if I have missed an amazing Pandora station, please let me know!
Also, if possible, don't miss out on live Irish-music concerts. Talk about a party! Bring your non-Irish loving friends, those who just don't get why you love Irish things so much, and then they will understand your obsession.
I live in Salt Lake City, Utah and the Young Dubliners are coming to concert March 15th -- the day Salt Lake celebrates St. Patrick's Day. (Always the Saturday before March 17th) I am so excited of this concert and I'm bring so many friends to help them realize how marvelous Irish music is.
Same day as the Young Dubliners, we have a massive St. Patrick's Day parade that goes through a outdoors mall in downtown Salt Lake. My Irish group will be in it and we've been practicing our parade-route number. SO EXCITED!
Anybody else going to be in a parade?
On March 17th, I'll be with a large group teaching them all how to Irish dance after we have eaten homemade Irish stew. I love teaching people how to dance and usually people love learning it.
And lastly, don't you find that there is a different energy at dance class during March? I feel we work harder but also have more fun.
It's our time to shine Irish dancers! Let's show the world why our hobby of dance is much more than just a thing we do -- it's a thing we eat, sleep and breath. It's our passion.
Erin Go Bragh!
