Happy St. Patrick's Day
Posted by Christine Hurt

Shamrock Before moving from Texas to Milwaukee, we never realized that St. Patrick's Day was an actual holiday.  In Texas, the day is an excuse to wear a green tie.  Here, it rivals Hallowe'en and Valentine's Day as second-tier holidays.  I think the bars open in 15 minutes, if they are not open already. 

At our house, St. Patrick's Day is known as St. Packer's Day.  When we first moved, our kids were told to wear green to school that day.  Well, in Milwaukee, 90% of green clothing has some sort of Green Bay Packers symbol on it.  So, elementary rooms are filled with kids in the Packers clothing.  Since my kids had no idea who St. Patrick was, they thought it was St. Packer's Day.
