Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Kolcraft
It’s been said that everyone is a little Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. We found that to be true at Kolcraft as people shared their St. Patrick’s Day traditions.
Family – We gather as a family to celebrate my grandma’s birthday. Even though she was from Poland, she loved St. Patrick’s day so we still have corned beef & cabbage in her honor. – MH
Friends - The Sunday before St. Patrick’s day, we have a big party with our friends. Some friends even come in from out of town! We have a huge spread of food, a real Irish band play at the house and of course Irish dancing. -CF
Food – Our neighborhood block all gathers in one person’s yard for the annual Irish Soda Bread bake-off. The taste testing is the best part! -MW
However you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, in the words of the Irish toast we wish you – May you be poor in misfortune, rich in blessings, slow to make enemies, and quick to make friends.
From our family to yours Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
