Today is St. Patrick's Day!
March 17th frequently is a beautiful day weather-wise, and today's weather won't disappoint. St. Patrick's is often an excuse to play hooky from school or work.
I did get my daffodil wreath hung up on the front door yesterday, but our Christmas star is still high up on the flagpole. (It's a pain to get down. Hey, at least we don't light it anymore.) Time to take the star down today!
When I walked through the neighborhood yesterday, I noticed I am not alone in being a little late in getting the Christmas decorations down. I think I counted 6 Christmas wreaths still up on my short jaunt? The snow was so deep for so long it probably interfered with homeowners outdoor duties, but that is no longer a problem.
So in celebration of St. Patrick's Day and spring (we're almost there), how about taking down the Christmas wreaths?
