    Why do we celebrate St Patricks Day?

    Ok, without doing any research beforehand, do you know the meaning of St Patricks Day? What was your understanding of this celebration when you were young? All I remember is being chased for not wearing green, and then pinched profusely-OUCH! So, what do you remember? Have fun rekindling your childhood memories...

    We always ate corned beef and cabbage somewhere, since my boyfriend at the time (now my husband) has parents who immigrated from Ireland. There was always a lot of partying going on and boiled potatoes, spicy potato casserole, and vinegar potato salad (which is actually pretty healthy & my weightlifter husband still makes it).
