St. Patrick's Day blog carnival: two weeks away!

Just two weeks left to get ready for the St. Patrick's Day 2008 edition of the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture, our 4th edition to date.

Now your's chance to join us, whether you have Irish heritage or not. An appreciation of any and all things Irish is the only prerequisite for entry. Here are the details:

March is Irish heritage month in many places, thanks to the feast day of St. Patrick, beloved saint of Ireland. Our topic for this month will be anything and everything about Irish heritage, genealogy and culture.

Posts about St. Patrick will be appreciated, but posts related to any meaningful aspect of Ireland's heritage are welcomed. To borrow an idea from Bill West's genealogy parade, we'll have our very own virtual St. Patrick's Day parade!

The deadline is March 14, 2008. Submit your entry here. Then come join us for the celebration on St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 2008.

On the feast of St. Patrick, everyone likes to be Irish, at least for one day. Hope to see you wearing your green!

Update March 17: The carnival has been posted at A St. Patrick's Day parade of posts!

In 2008 St. Patrick's Day is March 15th and is was moved to this day because it would have fallen in Holy Week so the Catholic Church moved it to the 15th. After all it is an Irish Catholic Holiday. And They wont change it again till the mid of next century

Savannah had a huge St. Patrick's Parade on March 14, 2008 this year, since March 17th was during Holy Week. To see thousands of photos of the celebration, please go to spotted.savannahnow.com
