Saint Patrick's Day is not a federal holiday, but indeed a holiday from our more practical problems and issues. For this holiday, there are no gift lists, postal hours or holiday cards to coordinate. Let's breathe in, breathe out and now smile... it's time to get our Irish-on! It's become a national celebration - but not wholly an Irish one. Here in America, we've added green beer, parades, and corned beef. In Ireland, it is more of a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March.
Madame Alexander represented many holidays and traditions with her Alexander-kins. Saint Patrick's Day saw a variety of dolls and themes created for the American observance of its immigrant history and traditions. Celebrating here is "Luck of the Irish" #327 from 1992. As we all know, feeding the leprechauns takes time, love and effort. However, it's not all work and no play - dolledition.com helps with a little fun.
