When I was a kid, Saint Patrick’s Day was symbolized by drunk white guys, purple cabbage, and multi-colored rice crispy treats made with off-brand Lucky Charms cereal. Maybe we would watch a parade on TV. At some point a bagpipe album would come on. Someone might wear a green polo shirt otherwise reserved for Saturdays cleaning gutters. Or, if you were lucky, it would rain that day and we would spend school recess watching Darby O’Gill and the Little People (yes, again, drunk white guys and cabbage….the cycle begins again.)
These days, Saint Pat’s is a little different. It's classy stuff. A wholesome affair. It’s all about wearing heavy Irish wool. Eating chocolate Guinness stout cake. Celtic Woman live performance marathons on PBS. Leprechauns. Shamrocks. Shillelaghs. Rainbows. And, as you know, rainbows are very On Trend.
Unicorn coming to town? Rainbows.Surviving 40 days and 40 nights of flooding on an ark? Rainbows.Skittles giving you gas? Rainbows.
They are everywhere. Including your windows...
|This is the danger of keeping a rainbow in your kitchen. Unicorns could bust in at any moment!|

Many thanks to Team Elizabeth for featuring this project, and special thanks my friends Brendan and Stephanie for allowing me to come over and use their house (and kiddos) for this project. Guys, not only did they let me install an elephant size rainbow in their window, they played TONY ORLANDO while it was happening. And provided tacos. Now that is what I call a Sunday!
