Happy St. Patty's Day

March 17th, 2010 at 07:40 am

Actually, I didn't even know it was today until... today. Big Grin However, I am also wearing the best kind of green I can have. The one where my investment balances are showing green!

The last several days have been rather good at the market. Lots of factors played a role, but overall, the market is growing in confidence over signs of a fundamental economic recovery. Well, I don't know if that's true or not, but that's the market sentiment anyway.

On a separate note, because I was clueless about St. Patrick, I decided to read some about it online. Did you know that he was kidnapped and sold as a slave when he was a teenager? I did not know that. He eventually went back to Ireland (where he was sold as a slave) to try to convert the masses there as a Bishop.

Also, the significance of the green Clover was his way of explaining the concept of the Holy Trinity to the local populace. It must have been quite effective, but I wonder why the four-leaf clover is considered lucky? Since the Holy Trinity is three, not four. Or maybe that's a later invention? Does anyone know?

Anyways, have a happy St. Patty's day everyone.

    Thanks for sharing some insight on the day. I did know about the trinity reference. And I have no clue on about the four leaves!

    I checked our investments on Friday and things were looking VERY good. I need to check them again.

    Actually, having green cash in your wallet is not bad either. Thanks for the history.

    the four leaf clovers are: Faith, love, hope and luck or the trinity (father, son, holy spirit) plus yourself.

    At least that is how I learned it from the irish catholic priet growing up. He had a wonderful sermon for st. pattys day based on that idea.
