St.Patrick’s Day

Last monday, a very special Irish celebration took place; St.Patrick’s Day. This is the national day of celebration for our patron saint, and it takes place each year on the 17th of March. Every years numerous parades and events are held across the country to mark the occasion. Strangely enough, it sometimes seems to me that some of the people in America celebrate the day with more gusto than the Irish… :P

In my town a carousel was assembled on the main thoroughfare for the bank-holiday weekend and a good few of the landmarks in the area were illuminated with green light!

The spinning carousel!

The carousel was made in antique style (using plastic)!
