It’s St. Patrick’s Day, that Irish holiday when we wear green clothes, eat green food, and maybe score some “luck of the Irish” for ourselves. There are leprechauns, those funny elf-like fellows from Irish fairy tales who are only as tall as kids, but have big magical powers. Supposedly they keep all their coins in a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, which would be a great thing to find. It’s even better to find the leprechaun himself, because if you capture him he’ll grant you 3 wishes. Another Irish symbol is the shamrock, or 3-leaf clover, because long ago people in Ireland believed that carrying a clover kept you safe from evil spirits. It’s still a sign of good luck today, and 4-leaf clovers are even better luck. Who knows, maybe today you’ll find a leprechaun or a clover – or at the least, you’ll get to eat a green pretzel.

On the Other Hand…

Most people are right-handed, which means they use their right hand to write and generally feel stronger using their right side.  However, there are people out there who are left-handed, which means that they write with their left hand, and probably pour drinks, brush their hair, and do lots of other things lefty.  In the old days, everyone thought left-handed people were a threat to society.  But don’t worry, now that we have Google to look up all this stuff, we know that being lefty isn’t bad at all.  In fact, it might mean you’re better at certain things, like music and math.  You will, however, have to get a different-shaped glove to play catch.
