Why do I love St. Patrick's Day?
First of all, my name. It's kind of cool to have songs made with your name in them, like "Come back to Erin." It's fun to poetically have the same name as an entire country. Especially a country with awesome stuff like step-dancing, pennywhistles, Guinness and shamrocks.
Secondly I'm related to leprechauns.
Third, my favorite color is green. Kelly green, the brighter the better. It just sort of gives me a happy, tickly feeling inside. My daughter, who knows this, often colors green things just for me. That gives me a tickly feeling too.
