Happy St. Patrick’s Day 2021!

Waterford City is having a Virtual St. Patrick’s Day this year. We need it! St. Patrick’s Parade is a highlight of the year, a beloved tradition we look forward to, celebration of community spirit, pride for our achievements, family fun, smiles and laughter. This year, for the sake of our mental health, we are going to parade in our gardens and around our homes. There is a Facebook page where we can share our projects.

I don’t remember what exactly was St. Patrick from the opening picture saying back in 2015. This year he would probably say “Stay sane!”

Here are a few pictures from yesteryears.

Then 2020 arrived…

Now we are on our own, making our way through the pandemic the best we can. Some people have got their “bubble”.

Some talk to themselves in the mirror, just to have a conversation with another human being.

Some put a mask on, stay away from others and wait. And wait.

So, let’s do something this St. Patrick’s Day. Let’s hit a Pound Shop/ Dollar Store, grab a couple of those gorgeous accessories and walk our own parade. 

Waterford City is sending you a Green Light:)

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!


  1. Happy Saint Paddy’s!
    Inese, is it still okay to say Saint Paddy’s? Or is that now also politically incorrect?
    Just in case “Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!”
    I don’t know what I’m allowed anymore.
    Great shots of yesteryears. Hope you are having a lovely day!

  2. Great photos of yesteryear. Love the mime. Hope everything is well in the corner of your world.

  3. Hi Inese. Sorry you cannot enjoy St. Patrick’s Day the usual way, Loved the images of the green on the buildings and water – looked so cool!

  4. A nice St. Patrick’s day pictures from yesteryears and the year with mask covering. That is a good idea to hit a local store and do the walk ourselves. I think just come to see this virtual parade is good enough for me this year.

    Have a happy St. Patrick’s day!

  5. And a Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you! Thanks for sharing the photos back in the good old days that we took for granted. Makes me want to go to the Dollar Tree for something green – it always has plenty of Patty Day stuff. Cheers! Stay well!

  6. I love your pictures – you are so gifted. Yes, we all need it. Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I intend to make green mashed potatoes tomorrow!

  7. Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! Let’s make the virtual celebration as colorfoul as possible. Thanks for sharing this post, Inese!
