I remember the first time I celebrated St Patrick’s Day. Back then I had no family and no kids. I was living in Brussels and my friend and I went out to a pub. We dressed up in green, listened to Irish music, watched Irish dances and drank beer.

St Patrick’s Day with kids is different. Though we still dress up in green and listen to Irish traditional music, the going out part has been replaced by crafting.  There are so many beautiful crafts to go along with this holiday.
