Today, I introduced the holiday of St. Patrick’s Day to my students. They seemed to relate better to this holiday than they did to Mardi Gras (see earlier post from a couple of weeks a go). My students told me that the green-leaf clover is also considered lucky in China. It can be found in certain parts of China. Luck, blessings, and good fortune are very important parts of the Chinese culture as well. My students really seemed to enjoy the pictures, Irish blessings, and a video I shared with them of the Irish clog dancing (I use to love watching the Irish dancers at this time of year, when I lived in Germany). I hope my readers will enjoy them, too! Happy St. Patty’s Day!
Taught some motions with this blessing, too. It was fun!
Made an amusing illustration on the blackboard to go with this one! Sorry, I did not think to take a picture.
This one is my favorite Irish blessing, and I love the picture! I told my students to stand in a field of flowers to let the butterflies “light on their shoulders” next time they need some cheering up! 🙂
I was so happy after the St. Patty’s Parade in Midway, Georgia last year! Missing my family a little!
