I'd love to hear ideas on this for our toddlers! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/shamrocksmile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shamrock"><br><br>
I am thinking of making 4-leaf clover cookies with dd and then having a traditional Irish meal (as far as I know of traditional!).<br><br>
Maybe make shamrocks to decorate the house and also thinking of buying some green material so dd can wear a cape around the house that day of some sort.

We are mostly Irish. So this is a big day for us. We are going to go to hendersonville nc downtown thing. I will also make the cookies and decorate. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/partytime.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="partytime"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/partytime.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="partytime">

St. Patrick's day is my favorite holiday! I always make cookies, wear something green or Celtic (I have a rockin Guinness shirt this year!) and find something for DD- this year, I bought a plain green dress and embroidered a shamrock on it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Oh, and my husband and I own an Irish pub, so our whole year pretty much revolves around the only day. It used to be a big family day for us, but now it's just DD and me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/shamrocksmile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shamrock">

What we are doing is probably not authentic, but it's fun. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> The town I went to college in had this great Irish pub with this fabulous appetizer, and I make my re-creation of it as best I can, which we eat as a side dish along with whatever else is for dinner, and beer for adults:<br>
2 or 3 potatoes, cooked and mashed<br>
1 cup cheddar cheese<br>
1 onion, chopped and cooked with garlic<br>
1 egg<br>
some flour (1/4 cup?)<br><br>
Stir all ingredients together. Flour hands and shape mixture into little balls (1-1/2 inches). Fry. Salt and serve with sour cream and chives. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy">
