st. patrick

as a fun event for Ari's house at school we hosted a celebration of St. Patrick. most of us know about shamrocks, leprechauns, and pots of gold, but not much about the man that inspired this holiday.
St. Patty's Punch (sprite and lime sherbert)
St. Patrick actually isn't Irish. he was actually captured and brought to Ireland as a slave. even after such a horrible experience he returned after feeling prompted in a dream to bring the gospel to the emerald isle.
