Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

I'm half Irish (thank's Dad!), although I'm also half Scottish, and have lived in northern Scotland my whole life. But Fair to say, I'm all Celt!

I've googled in the past, and I actually don't know when/why/where "Patty's" or "Paddy's" day crept in to use, but I can say that I cringe, every time I hear it.

Here's a random bit of info though - did you know, Saint Patrick wasn't Irish? He also wasn't officially a Saint! He was kidnapped when he was wee, and taken to Ireland, escaped, found God, and returned years later. It's also unlikely he had anything to do with driving snakes from Ireland - they wouldn't have been there in the first place.

I love researching stuff like this, and often do a deep dive whilst designing new book folds - like the claddagh below!
