The most wonderful time of year...

I know what you thinking, "Christmas is way over! Don't even talk about it for another 8 months!" But while Christmas holds the rights to the song, St. Patrick's Day is my favorite time of the year.

What?!?! you may be asking. St. Patrick's is like a non-holiday. You don't even get time off work for that one. But who wouldn't love a holiday based around cheer, beer, and short people? It is also the holiday that starts spring off. And, being the "non-holiday" that it is, there is absolutely NO PRESSURE! I mean besides finding some sort of green to wear around, the holiday is as easy as dying your milk green.

My mom always did a good job of making every holiday fun. For instance, what kid doesn't love Green eggs and ham for breakfast? It's Dr. Seuss and St. Patrick's day all rolled into one. And, while some might cringe at the thought of Corned Beef and Cabbage, it was like a delicacy at our house.

But back to basics... The number one reason I love St. Patrick's day is because after a slew of holidays full of stress and planning comes the one holiday about relaxing and enjoying life. No stress, no planning, no expectation, no expensive gifts to buy, or romantic evenings to plan. It's just fun.

So Merry Spring! And Happy St. Patrick's Day!
