The week is fast drawing to a conclusion and that means it’s…. St Patrick’s Eve and almost the day for green beer. All decked out to start the celebration early in a fun plaid dress from Banana Republic and my kelly green sweater. Exploring my Irish always gives rise to a toast so how about 10 Favourite Irish Cheers
Happy St Patrick’s Eve
Starting the celebrations early or maybe just practicing how I think it will go. The Irish are known to have a way with the words and of course the constitution for the beer so naturally they have a knack for the “Cheers”. Is there anything better than an Irish Cheer, well maybe one on St Patrick’s Day. I thought maybe today I would share my ten favourite Irish Cheers.
- For St Patrick “Saint Patrick was a gentleman,Who through strategy and stealth,Drove all the snakes from Ireland,Here’s a toasting to his health.But not too many toastings Lest you lose yourself and then
Forget the good Saint Patrick And see all those snakes again.”
- For the Irish– “Here’s to the land of the shamrock so green,Here’s to each lad and his darlin’ colleen,
Here’s to the ones we love dearest and most.May God bless old Ireland, that’s this Irishman’s toast!”
- For Drinking- “Here’s to a long life and a merry one.A quick death and an easy one.
A pretty girl and an honest one.A cold pint– and another one!”
- For the Party “When we drink, we get drunk.When we get drunk, we fall asleep.
When we fall asleep, we commit no sin.When we commit no sin, we go to heaven.
So, let’s all get drunk, and go to heaven!”
- For Good Times– “Always remember to forget The things that made you sad.
But never forget to remember The things that made you glad.”
- For Friends- “May the lilt of Irish laughter lighten every load. May the mist of Irish magic shorten every road…
And may all your friends remember all the favours you are owed!”
- For Luck – “May you have all the happiness and luck that life can hold—
and at the end of all your rainbows may you find a pot of gold.”
- For Money – “It is better to spend money like there’s no tomorrow
than to spend tonight like there’s no money!”
- For celebration– “May the winds of fortune sail you,May you sail a gentle sea.
May it always be the other guy who says, ‘this drink’s on me.'”
- For Us– “Dance as if no one were watching,Sing as if no one were listening,
And live every day as if it were your last.”
Irish Eyes are Smiling and Laughing
I love this day and getting ready to celebrate. I lived in Saint John New Brunswick almost all of my life and they do the day right. Coming from the port city where the Canadian version of Ellis Island is located , Partridge Island, our roots run deep. Heck my roots run deep.
Ironically I thought we came over before the potato famine but discovered that we came before that. I also believed we were the protestant Cassidy’s even though our name was not “Cassady” . Funny story I am baptist but my roots do not trace back the way I expected. Apparenty my ancestors were catholic but my grandmother switched to Anglican and then United because the church was closer. That sure changed my ancestry story……So this Irish Gal is still smiling and laughing regardless of her roots.
