Saint Patrick’s Memories

Next Saturday is March 17. Saint Patricks Day. A day for the Irish to celebrate  thier heritage. I grew up in Boston,specifically South Boston. Every year there was a parade to celebrate. The official state holiday was Evacuation day. The holiday commemorates the evacuation of British forces from the city of Boston following the Siege of Boston, early in the American Revolutionary War.

Yes history was important but growing up all I cared about was the parade,and the food afterwards.  My friends and family all knew they would find food,fun and friendship at our house. My then fiancee  was aubjected to and survived the terror known as “THE UNCLES’ the name for the collective gang of my father and his three brothers.

I’ve not lived in Boston in 25 years and a lot has changed, THE UNCLES are no longer with us, Dad left us a few months ago. Come the17th,I’ll raise a glass to them and the memories of previous celebration.
