St. Patty's Day

Last night Jilda cooked corn-beef and cabbage for Saint Patty's Day. It's a meal we enjoy every year. We had yoga class so we didn't get to eat until late but afterwards we had a small feast.
We have Darby O'Gil and the Little People that we watch every year. I love that little movie because most of the characters look like family members. Jilda's family is of Irish decent and dad favored the guy that played Darby in the film.
There is something comforting about rituals. With the hustle and bustle of life, it would be so easy to blow off the important days and do something easy. I have to say that my lovely spouse is very fond of tradition and rituals and rarely does she let a significant day pass without doing something special. It doesn't take a great deal for us to celebrate, but St. Patty's Day is a natural for us.
