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!
