My family has always celebrated this day, as my Mother was a 3rd generation Branagan here in the States. Her family settled in the Midwest, with her immediate relations around Cleveland, Ohio. My twin boys were born 12 hours past St. Patrick's day, so it's a double celebration around here! Special food, green birthday cakes, Irish music...we have a blast. So to all, I wish the very best for you and yours on this day! .
