Get Ready!

3.12.2008

It's time for our 4th Annual "Irish Night". It will be this coming Monday, the 17th (of course) at our place. If you're around please come. The night usually consists of: traditional Irish food, story-telling/reading, fiddles, jigs, and singing.

Why Irish Night? My ancestors are from Ireland, and I'm quite connected to their spirits in a very nostalgic sort of way.

I can't believe it's been four years since we started our tradition! The first year was in Springville: there was plenty of good food, Ash played the fiddle, Jake made boxties & read a ballad, I sang, and we learned about 'silkies'. The second year consisted of myself, my mom, and 2 neighbors. It was a low year, but we enjoyed the Irish food and talked. Year number three (just this year past) we invited our lovely Irish neighbors(and many others who came)...so our party was legit. We listened to more stories, I and others played the guitar and banjo and sang, we ate the yummy Irish foods, and ended the night with a jig.

This year will be just lovely. Hope you can come.
