The first thing I think of is the St Patrick's Day parade! We have one right here in town on the Sunday before the holiday. This year will be the 46th annual.
They paint a big shamrock on the road (sometimes covertly). When I was a kid they used to paint a green stripe down the center of the double yellow line in the road all along the parade route. The first thing you see in the parade is a big sign that says "The Irish are coming!" I also love the bagpipe band. The best thing about the parade is walking up and down the parade route looking for old friends.

I don't care for shamrock shakes.

We don't have any local parades for St. Patrick's Day. Pittsburgh does, but I won't try to fight the traffic getting there.

I am 100% Irish, so I always celebrate. This year will be interesting since Bobby is no longer driving a green car and my total wardrobe is no longer green! LOL I'll have to think about what to wear this year.

We had our parade today despite the rain and cold wind. I went even though I knew I was coming down with a cold. I shouldn't have, because now I feel worse. My hubby stayed home with my son because hubby has a sinus infection and my son has had a fever since Sat am. I didn't walk around much because I wasn't feeling up to it. Just a tiny bit. I got to see my bagpipes (2 diff. bands this year) and my fife & drum band. It took 2 hours to go by. Good thing the wind was at my back, that way I could keep my umbrella up. At least it saved me from getting soaking wet.

I will have to admit that I think of several things with St. Patrick's Day. St. Patrick himself, green, shamrocks, jigs and reels, parades, etc.

My nieces take Irish Dancing lessons. We go to the parade every year. This year was warm and sandwiched inbetween rain. Afterwards we go to one of the taverns. They have tents set up outside for everyone (children too). Some of the pipers that are in the parade come and did some piping for the kids. They danced jigs.
