Time to pull out the green and those fun recipes for Saint Patrick’s Day this Thursday. This is a friendly reminder to get out those green hats, shamrocks, tablecloths, food coloring and practice your Irish jigs.
Did you know? The reason the Irish gig is danced rather stiffly from the legs up, is because a very prudish priest dictated that the good people of Ireland were to be circumspect while dancing. Thus, the torso was to remain non-provocative.
All I can think is the Irish sure have good dance imaginations, because I love to watch a good jig (check out River Dance), as the spirit of these beautiful people shines through no matter which dance they choose to do.
