There are two kinds of people in this world. The Irish, and everyone else who wishes they were Irish.
The story of St Patrick has fascinated the world for centuries, and you can still see his legacy clearly all around the world. Every year on St Patrick’s Day, cities and people across the globe deck themselves out in forty shades of green, and the Global Greenings illuminate over 180 iconic international landmarks to match….
Let the good times roll in Eureka Springs, Arkansas!
Winter doesn’t mean you have to stay indoors. Come and join in the fun, watch spectacular parades, get a taste of New Orleans, dress up and join the masquerade. It is all about having a good time and February in Eureka Springs is full of fun and exciting things to do.
If you love music, food and a great party, don’t miss this experience! Mardi Gras, a.k.a. Fat Tuesday, is a Carnival celebration of food; a revelry before the first day of Lent; a final hurrah before forty days of fasting and abstinence—and boy, is it a wild festival in Eureka Springs. With all the parades and zany costumes, Mardi Gras is one fun, festive, and slightly weird event worth making the effort to see….
I love this month! First, it’s that much closer to spring, which I also love, and it’s home to Valentine’s Day! I know a lot of people don’t love Valentine’s Day, and I’m sure they have their reasons, but they might also be missing a few of mine. To me February 14th is about love in all forms. In fact my first experience of Valentine’s Day was receiving candies and love notes from my mom, certainly not from boyfriends. On the romantic front, I will admit that I have been spoiled. Raymond and I will be spending our 15th Valentine’s Day together this year, but even still… I love my dogs, I love my home, I love my mom, my friends, my students, this little baby on the way. I love the sunshine and I love the rain. So if you’re a cynic this season I urge you to reconsider how many wonderful people, places, and things, you have and love in your life. And then choose to celebrate love in all forms this February 14th, and all month long….
