Our totally untraditional, Americanized, kid-friendly St. Patty's Day

We're not Catholic. And not particularly Irish, though there's probably some back there somewhere. But I just can't pass up a holiday. Nobody at our house likes corned beef or cabbage, so we came up with our own way of celebrating.

The leprechaun hides his pot of gold and leaves a trail of glitter and mischief throughout the house. Green milk, green toilet water, etc.

The mask came from his big brother and he ran around all afternoon singing "I am Lucky the Leprechaun!"

Max made his own mask ;)

We had a lively discussion about rainbows and ROYGBIV or ROYGBIP (must be a Canadian thing) tonight at the dinner table.

Random green foods that we like. Much better than cabbage!

A little rainbow jello.

And everybody's favorite Shamrock Pie.
