"The Unicorn" was selected because Monday is St. Patrick's Day. Unfamiliar with this week's song? Hear it here.
1) This song was recorded by The Irish Rovers. While it's said that on St. Patrick's Day everyone is Irish, can you honestly claim Irish heritage?
I don't think so, most of our family surnames are Scottish. Mr. BC has a McKinley in the background.
2) According to the 2000 Census, Massachusetts is the state with the largest percentage of residents of Irish descent. Have you ever been to The Bay State? No, but we are planning a trip to New England this fall and Massachusetts is included in our itinerary. We are both history buffs and a lot of American History took place there. We plan to be gone for a month.
3) Other than St. Patrick, what is Ireland famous for?
Guinness, whisky, the color green, the Blarney Stone, the potato famine, red hair, shamrocks, leprechauns, U2, Limericks and luck..... lots of stuff.
4) St. Patrick's Day is celebrated the world over. They even watch marching bands and wave Irish flags on St. Patrick's Day in Moscow. Does your town have a St. Patrick's Day parade?
No, only a Christmas Parade and various Homecoming Parades.
5) "The wearing o' the green" is one way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Will you wear something green in honor of the day? If I remember.
6) Have you ever had green beer? No.
7) Have you ever ordered a Shamrock Shake at McDonald's?
They're Ok.....but my preferred green drink is Starbucks Green Tea Frappicino. I once had someone convinced it was an Avocado Shake.
8) A four-leaf clover is considered good luck. Do you have a lucky charm? A Butterfly. We see them often around important events so I am convinced when I see one that it is my mom looking over my shoulder.
9) Speaking of Lucky Charms, they are magically delicious. What brand of cereal is in your kitchen right now?
Quaker's Oatmeal Squares are my current favorite.
