A Little Saint Confusion

Some of the feast days are being changed this year due to Holy Week.  As I read at someone else’s blog, the saints don’t mind so why should we? 

 Anyway, MaryEllen has really been looking forward to St. Patrick’s Day.  Today she asked, “Does St. Patrick bring us presents like St. Nicholas does?”   I told her he does not.  Her reply was, “Then what does he do?”  Then James chimed in, “He probably doesn’t care anymore because all people care about anymore is leprechauns.  Leprechauns have red or orange hair and a beard, kind of like Abe Lincoln.  Expect Abe Lincoln didn’t have red or orange hair.”   Then MaryEllen wanted to know if people really have red and orange hair.  You just gotta love kids’ thinking!

    MaryEllen, St. Patrick chased all the snakes out of Ireland! So, there are no snakes in Ireland. (Although, I find this difficult to believe.) Be sure to put any gold you find today into a good Roth IRA account (pay the taxes first!), because the investment return is very high in a Roth IRA. (Aunt Louise can give you specifics on all of this.) Happy St. Patrick’s day, everyone!

    Hi Kris!

    Andrea’s daughter Amanda received her 1st Communion today. You probably already know, but I’m telling you in case you didn’t! Happy Easter Season to all!
