Top o' the Morning to Ya!

Okay, the slow-loading poll was driving me crazy, so I removed it.

The results at the end of St. Patrick's Day were

38% Pro-Dyeing Food Green
33% Anti-Dyeing Food Green
28% Indifferent

If you would like to elaborate on your answers, leave a comment.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Online polls can be very misleading. Or something. I like St. Patrick's Day. I am excited to wear a green shirt and celebrate my brother's birthday and with him even. That doesn't happen nearly enough! :)

Once my roommates decided to dye the mashed potatoes green for St. Patrick's Day.

I could not bring myself to eat them.

I have no problems eating foods that are meant to have unnatural, day-glo colors--like Sour Patch Kids and the like, but some foods are fine as is.

Why is this the only holiday with colored food? That seems weird to me.

I did briefly consider turning some part of my dinner green tonight but then I remembered that the Irish themselves don't actually do stuff like that and since it is an Irish holiday it makes good sense to celebrate it like the Irish--of course the (Northern) Irish don't really celebrate it a whole lot (I lived in Ireland (Northern Ireland) for 2 St. Paddy's days and didn't celebrate it at all. No corned beef and cabbage, no green, nothing. There is a parade in Belfast but it is more Gerry Adams and the IRA than Leprechauns throwing candy.) The Republic probably does it a bit better but still I think Americans celebrate it best so in that case maybe I should turn something green.

I don't really care, but my kids love it. I tried to dye the pancakes green this morning, but they were whole wheat cinnamon pancakes and they just ended up looking really, really gross.

Hmmm, I think I'd rather dye stuff green then have an IRA parade.

And, Lori, I think that's the major St. Patrick's day dyeing food green problem--the food so often comes out looking freaky.
