well, in honor of st. patrick's day, my boys have been watching VeggieTales' Sumo of the Opera for the past week or so. on this particular dvd there is a short story about the history of this holiday and the person it's named for. if you aren't already a veggietales fanatic like we are, you don't know what you're missing!
i get promotional emails from Big Idea (the makers of VeggieTales) and the following quote is from an email i received today.
"Maewyn Succat ... or more commonly known as “St. Patrick.” Would you or your kids like to learn how Maewyn became St. Patrick? Watch our (mostly) educational and (somewhat) historical video here!"
so, if you want to learn more about who st. patrick was and why we celebrate st. patrick's day in a humorous and witty manner, check out the above link! we like it! hope you do too!
