Who Hid the Green Stuff?

It’s March, and where I come from, March can only mean ONE thing: 

Shamrock Shakes are back!!!! 

Yes, there’s the start of Spring and the Big Ten (that’s like the SEC for all of you south of the Mason-Dixon Line) and St. Patrick’s Day!

St. Patrick’s Day, which IS a holiday, is heralded by the return of the glorious Shamrock Shake at your local McDonald’s.  The anticipation is incredible.  See, up North, the crocus, the daffodils, well, they do NOT welcome spring.  If they don’t wait until WELL into the season, they could freeze.  No, to millions of children and adults alike, spring is signaled by the golden arches announcement that Shamrock Shakes are, indeed,  back

You can consult the official unofficial website to find one near you, if you are lucky enough to live up North!

For now, I will have to be content with my memories of home and the good old days and Uncle O’Grimacey .
