Snow, and St. Patrick's Day

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

I just went to Writers Almanac and not only read a lovely poem about one of my favorite things--snow--but also the history of St. Patrick's Day.

Are you wearing green? I am. I also spiked my son's milk this morning with green food coloring--about the only time all year I use food coloring in food. How do you celebrate the day?

Also learned that on this day, in something like 1901, Vincent Van Gogh had his first major show--and he was 11 years dead. Yes, I know. Fame after death is a depressing thought, but hey, it's better than nothing, right?
