You know what today is, right?
Sure you do.
You could ask my students if you don’t.
They’ll tell you:
It’s Patrick’s Day!
No need to wear green. No use for shamrocks. No taste for corned beef or cabbage.
Because when you’re 7 or 8 years old and you hear “St. Patrick’s Day,” you kind of ignore the “St.” and your mind travels to Bikini Bottom, where Spongebob, Sandy, Squidward, and Mr. Krabs are celebrating the man of the day, Patrick.
Read about the holiday my students created in response to them hearing “Patrick’s Day.” And allow us all to wish you and yours a great one!
