HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY
Happy St. Patrick’s Day All,
This year all the events were cancelled for the corona-virus. But that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate it in your own home. Get some Irish music going, even go on YouTube and get a video of an old parade and watch it. Create your own fun. This is what Dan and I’m doing.
Looking back at other St. Patrick’s Day parades and pictures to keep Dan and I in touch with the holiday.
Saint Patrick's Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland), the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Lutheran Church. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general.
Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, céilís, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks. Christians who belong to liturgical denominations also attend church services and historically the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol were lifted for the day, which has encouraged and propagated the holiday's tradition of alcohol consumption. CHEERS

The Crane is associated with longevity, health, happiness, wisdom and good luck.
Today I went to my car and there was a crane on the top of it. All I could think of is that Dan will be upset. But wait is there a meaning why it was on my car?
The Crane is a symbol of long life and immortality
"http://www.squidoo.com/feng-shui-symbols"The Crane is associated with longevity, health, happiness, wisdom and good luck.
In Asia, Cranes are symbols of longevity and immortality. The White Crane can fly to the heavens and it is a Chinese symbol for "wisdom" and is sometimes called the "heavenly" or "blessed" Crane. Cranes were vehicles of the gods and in China fly them to the "Isle of the Immortals", the legendary home of the eight immortals. A Crane's eggs were used in magic potions to grant eternal life upon its drinkers.
In many parts of the world, Cranes are regarded as a messenger of the gods. In ancient Egypt, legend says that a two-headed crane was once seen flying over the Nile, to announce a new age of joy and prosperity.
Cranes are masters at killing snakes, thus, in Christian symbolism, they were seen as natural enemies of Satan.
Until tomorrow have a wonderful safe St. Patrick’s Day
