Happy St Patricks Day!

Tomorrow its St Patricks day and people all over the world are are getting ready to celebrate this well known Saint.  The celebration is to commemorate the work of St Patrick that spanned over thirty years when he travelled through Ireland creating Monastery's and spreading the word of Christianity.  He decided to do this after he spent 12 years himself in a monastery in Gaul and felt that it was his calling to convert pagans into Christians.

Today, this well loved Saint (particularly loved by the Irish) is celebrated delightfully by huge street parades and then a good old knees up afterwards!  This is the one day of the year I'm sure that sales in pubs of Guinness go through the roof as the St Patrick's day revellers get right into the spirit of things!

In order to join in the fun I have found a little clip of one of the most famous Irish songs ever to share with you that is beautifully sung by some of the most talked about stars of the moment - The Muppets!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Happy St Patricks day everyone!  We hope you have a fun filled day that includes plenty of Guinness and laughter!
