    We do love a parade, but I can assure you we do have intimate gatherings with loved ones too.

    I hate crowds so large parades are definitely not for me! I am not Irish whatsoever, but my husband is about half Irish, so we recognize the day. We stopped drinking 3 months ago though and he hates cabbage and potatoes. We do love brisket but we usually make our own and smoking meat just is not in the cards. It is a gorgeous sunny spring like day here, and we will just enjoy the day. If you celebrate, I hope it is enjoyable for all!

    Well today, England got well and truly slaughtered at rugby, by Ireland and lost by a mile. Rightly so...No Irish rugby player could have ever gone home, if they had lost, today of all days....

    Well I’m jealous, it’s -2 degrees C here and going to get cold tonight. It was snowing this morning. Unfortunately I’m not even slightly Irish so have no excuse to celebrate.

    I celebrated by visiting my brothers grave marker. He blew up 9 years ago today and the specifics are still uncertain. He drove into a big rock at high speed. All that was left was some fluid and a chunk of his jaw.

    No drugs or alcohol in his system and he had a high profile driving gig the next day.

    I almost had a swig of whiskey with my other brother but I figured why poison my body to pay my respects?

    So I smoked him a joint instead.

    I do have Irish blood in me too. Before the great grandfather changed his name we were O'Malloys.

    There's no answer to any of that, that would fill a space with anything that needs saying...

    Thanks @federica.

    Not sure why I still have an odd spot for the death of close loved ones. I wasn't even able to post a pic of my first wife's ashes to the shrine thread. I already have pics of 2 of them (shrines) in there so who cares but its odd that I felt an aversion there.
