Whether you are Irish by ancestry or not, everyone’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day! And my favorite way to celebrate it is by heading out to the local parade.  It’s usually the first, big outdoor event of the season – and if we are blessed with some Irish luck – the weather usually cooperates giving perfect, early Spring sunshine and light jacket temperatures.  Perfect for a parade!
