What’s In YOUR Bento? St.Patrick’s Day Edition…

title“May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light  *May good luck pursue you each morning and night.”  ~Irish Blessing

Did you know that Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official feast day in the early seventeenth century and that it commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland? And now it has become a celebration of “Irishness” and Irish culture in general!

Saint Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, North Ireland, and even here in Canada in Newfoundland and Labrador. As much as I wish it was a public holiday here…it is not. But we still have a bunch of fun celebrating it!

Starting with our very own St. Patrick’s Day bento…toplayerHow did I get that egg green, you say? Just like you would an Easter egg, only without the shell!eggdye*The green oval bento, little green box, the green baran divider, and the green silicon cup were purchased online from BentoUSA at www.allthingsforsale.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day everyone! And may the luck o’ the Irish be with you!happystpatricksday*I used rainbow ribbon instead of an elastic band to tie the bento and placed some shamrock stickers on the lid.

Thanks for stopping by!
