So says one of those famous Irish blessings, the kind we all recall as we count down the days to St. Patrick’s Day. And just because St. Patrick’s Day falls on Sunday, March 17, this year, don’t expect any fewer festivities or frivolities. In fact, this year, some 133 million Americans are expected to “be Irish for the day” and they will spend some $4.7 billion.
This year, more retailers assembled green-laden St. Patrick’s Day themed apparel and accessories, too. For those who aren’t Irish by birth, Luxe Deluxe has a lariat style necklace that provides a bit of the luck of the Irish: a sterling silver shamrock charm on one end and an olive green Swarovski chandelier crystal on the other end.
If this necklace isn’t enough to change your luck, then repeat this traditional Irish blessing:
“May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.”
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
