For the first time ever, ever, ever, I spent St. Patrick’s Day without my family. I had to work on Thursday, so I made everything on Wednesday, the day before the holiday.
Therefore, I had to make do on my own. I made corned beef and cabbage for the first time. I’ve made carrots before, but honestly, these were the best I’ve ever made. Once or twice, I’ve helped my mom with mashed potatoes, but this was the first time I’ve made them on my own.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
As I mentioned on Saturday, my family decided to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day early and I decided to blog about it. I hope you all enjoy the photos and learning a bit about my favorite holiday.
Why we celebrate
To be honest, I wish I knew more about why my family celebrates St. Patrick’s Day. I do know some of the history and traditions, but not in regards to my family specifically. Since as long as I can remember, my family has celebrated the holiday by eating a special meal. I’m not sure when that started though. I’m guessing my grandparents did, but I’m not sure.
