Across The Globe: Everyone Is Irish On Saint Patrick's Day!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day! It wouldn't be fitting if I didn't highlight the importance of this day considering I am third-generation Irish (my family's from Ballyhaunis, County Mayo -- a place where I have visited with the warmest of memories).

So for all you readers who don't think you're Irish, I'll entice you to reconsider:

Have some fun and if you laugh, then you have Irish spirit!

Learn about Ireland and feel as if you were born there!

And I will leave you with this fine Irish blessing:

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
