There are a couple of reasons I have a soft spot in my heart for St. Patrick and his day. For one, though my husband is Jewish (his mom was Jewish) he is also very Irish. His name is Ryan Patrick O'Shaughnessy Gallagher for crying out loud. Except without the O'Shaughnessy part.
Also, it is legend that St. Patrick banished all of the snakes from Ireland and while many scholars believe that "snakes" are a metaphor for something else entirely, I like to believe it actually just means snakes and then I like to picture St. Patrick in a flowing robe and strappy sandals, standing on a green Eire hill, pointing his finger toward the ocean waters and being all, "Erin Go Bragh for everyone but you, SNAKES."
I really love places where there are no snakes.
So moving on, I now present a very green giveaway.
