St. Patrick's Day at Our Holiday Site
There is a form of laughter that springs from the heart, heard every day in the merry voice of childhood, the expression of a laughter -- loving spirit that defies analysis by the philosopher, which has nothing rigid or mechanical in it, and totally without social significance. Bubbling spontaneously from the heart of child or man. Without egotism and full of feeling, laughter is the music of life. ~ Sir William Osler ~
Legend of Saint Patrick
Legend has it that Saint Patrick drove all the snakes out of Ireland that they all went into the sea and drowned. I don't know why he did this, except that the snake was a revered pagan symbol, and perhaps this was a figurative tale alluding to the fact that he drove paganism out of Ireland.
