A Wish for a Friend
Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!
This is an Irish blessing we read with part of our holiday unit study of Saint Patrick’s Day. This poem and other Irish blessings, as well as everything else Irish can be found here:

These two quotes from St. Patrick are going to look great on our pages!
We like playing “Would You Rather …?” games. Here’s one just for Saint Patrick’s Day. Some of these questions are crazy! All of them set up some awesome discussions. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/St-Patricks-Day-Would-You-Rather-Questions-119297
We made these shamrock treats! Hershey Kiss, Green M&M’s, and Pretzels – Bake at 275 Degrees for just a couple of minutes until the Kiss has melted. Watch carefully not to over cook, because burnt chocolate happens easily!
We have a few new rules during this study: must wear green, Irish accents and phrases are mandatory, if anyone finds a pot-o-gold they must share with Mom, and ABSOLUTELY NO PINCHING!
Last but not least, a brief history video on St. Patrick from Veggie Tales
I love the Irish blessing at the beginning of the post 🙂
I hope you get a chance to follow that Island Ireland link. All the blessings were wonderful. 🙂
We had the Irish blessing on the back of our wedding program. We went to Ireland for our honeymoon. And I absolutely LOVE that Veggietales of St. Patrick!
Oh, we read the Irish Wedding Blessing . Beautiful. Honeymoon in Ireland is pretty wonderful, too
