A Cultural Moment: Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!


In the midst of our confinement we can still celebrate a virtual holiday!  Today, March 17th , in Ireland and where ever there are Irish populations, people get together to wear green, eat corn beef and cabbage and celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day!  These videos explain the whys and hows of this green luck o’ the Irish celebration!


And now a traditional Irish anthem.  (Aviso: coged pañuelos, que es una canción bastante melancólica.)

And now for something equally traditional, but a little happier!

And just in case you aren’t familiar with Irish Step Dancing, here is a small taste.

Enjoy this cultural moment.  Happy Saint Patrick’s day and Luck o’ the Irish to you all!

Erin go bragh,
