The Fountains are Green Again in Savannah
You can see pictures and read about it here. This, of course, is because Wednesday is St. Patrick's day, which is HUGE here. What saddens me is how many people will pour into Savannah to booze it up and party, not knowing what Patrick really believed. And here from National Geographic, nonetheless, is an excellent article from last year about who Patrick really was and what he believed. No snakes. No wearing "kelly green" (Patrick wasn't even Irish!) and no public drunkenness. As for the real Patrick--I am currently reading a good book to Mary and Bobby about him. It's entitled Flame Over Tara by Madeleine Polland. We highly recommend it.
