It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

For the month of March, let's all be Irish, even if only a little bit.  The Irish, although often melancholic (with good reason) know how to have fun.  The St. Patrick's Day Parade in New York City on March 17 is the pride of all the Irish as are the local parades such as the Park Slope Parade on March 21.  Note who is marching--not just the Irish, but all nationalities are represented.  So, too, do the spectators represent all nationalities.  [I do think we need to work on being accepting and inclusive of ALL people in the parade, though.]  And please, please remember that it's St. Partick's Day, not St. Patty's day!

March is Irish month according to me.  Join me in celebrating, celebrating, celebrating! 

Since the Brooklyn parade began (35 years ago), I have attended every year except ONCE.  I will be there this year. Will you?

12 Noon Parade Assembly Point: Prospect Park West; 14th St
12:45PM "Re-Dedication Ceremony" to the Heroes; Victims of 9/11 - WTC
At Prospect Park West; 15th Street, before Parade "step-off"
1PM Parade Route
Down 15th St to 7th Ave
Along 7th Ave to Union St
Up Union St to Prospect Park West
Along Prospect Park West to 15th St

I have a feeling that the parade will get a shamrock!
