The Feast of Saint Patrick

There are a lot of things to wonder about this week: what to do on spring break; what are the Ides of March; why does everyone want to be Irish on the seventeenth? Since I am Irish I am going to talk about that last topic. The Feast day of Saint Patrick is both a religious holiday and, in many communities, a civic day of celebration. You can learn about the Saint himself at the library, but you might want to look for something more modern and less religious to celebrate with this weekend. We have some wonderful collections of modern Irish stories to peruse while you are waiting for the corned beef to finish cooking. Beware the Bain Sidhe!
