Happy, and barefoot, St. Patrick’s day!

I don’t know about you, but I’d love to find this barefoot sandal 4-leaf clover in my garden. I’m sure it would make you lucky if you found it;-)

Since moving to Boulder, CO almost 20 years ago, I love St. Patrick’s day, not just because of the world’s shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade (1/2 a block), but because by this time of year it’s usually warm enough to be barefoot again.

Now, granted, I’m barefoot throughout the whole winter, too. So it’s not like anything is actually changing for me. Plus, we usually get our biggest snowfall of the year AFTER mid-March, so it’s not time to put away the shovels.

But I’m not a winter sport guy. Summer is my season. There are fewer things I like better than a nice day running on the track, or one of our evening track meets when it’s still warm as the sun sets.

So, for me, St. Patrick’s is is the reminder that I’ve got month’s of comfortable bare footedness coming up soon.

I also have a lot of friends who have birthdays right around the 17th, so that’s fun, too.

What’s your favorite part of St. Patrick’s day, barefoot or not?
