I had not a stitch of green clothing or fabric or felt in the house! Nothing to send him to school with a touch of green. Not even green food coloring in the pantry, nothing! But we DID have green markers...
The boys couldn't believe that I said it was O.K. to draw on themselves! (Non-toxic, washable ink of course.) Soon we had little green four-leaf clovers on our hands and growing up our arms. The tradition has morphed into a single lucky clover on one hand and as simple as it sounds, it's still tradition and we take it very seriously.
Even Pepper The Cat would miss them each year if we didn't do it.
Well, we have green shirts this year and I have green felt all over the place. In my growing stash of fabric is lots and lots of pretty green. But it's just not St. Patrick's Day out here if we don't take the time to kiss our hands with our version of a good luck charm.
Happy St. Patrick's Day everybody!
