Happy St Patrick’s day!

Happy St Patrick’s day from your favourite Irish boat!

Dad has been educating mum all about Saint Patrick’s day because he’s originally Irish, even though grew up in Australia. I’ve been paying attention too because it’s super cool and I love Paddy’s day! My beloved Nocturne is Irish after all!

Saint Patrick is most known for driving the snakes from Ireland. Even though it’s true there aren’t any snakes in Ireland, there probably never were any in the first place because the island was separated from the rest of the continent at the end of the Ice Age. As in many old pagan religions, serpent symbols were common and often worshipped.

Saint Patrick’s Day has come to be associated with everything Irish: anything green and gold, shamrocks and of course luck!

The traditional St. Patrick’s Day meaning, is a traditional day for spiritual renewal and offering prayers for missionaries worldwide.

Cousin Chlobug, Jasmine and India have all been celebrating in true Irish style today! We’ve celebrated here too aboard Nocturne, with a glass of Baileys for the humans and a special bowl of kitty milk for me!

Wishing you all the luck of the Irish!

Bisous Bailey
