Happy St Patrick’s Day everyone! I hope you survived the day of green clothes, beer and running from being pinched!
My first memory of St. Patty’s Day was when I was in Kindergarten. We returned from recess to find the room ransacked with desks upside down, toys out of their place, books spread throughout the room and tiny little green footprints from the middle of the room and out the door. It appeared we were hit by the leprechaun’s and we thought it was the most amazing thing. Every St. Patty’s Day since, I’ve recalled that moment when I saw the mischief the tiny men in green created in our classroom!
It’s crazy how small moments like this make a lasting impression on you even as a child. Whether they are created by our teachers, parents, grandparents, siblings or friends some moments really do last a lifetime. The crazy thing is, most of the time the people who are involved in these instances don’t even know the impact. A simple thing like staging an leprechaun break-in still puts a smile on this girls face 20+ years later.
How about you? Do you have a certain memory from your childhood that you remember as vividly today as you did back then? Share it with me in the comments!
