Hello Tim,

Saint Patrick’s Day – Again!
This morning my daughter Julia (nine years old), while she dressed to go to school told me: Dad, I need to wear something green, or I’ll take (a pinch or some pinches? I’m not sure!). I asked why, she told me about the special date.
Thank you for teaching.

Saulo -= beginner – I can do better and I will do it=.

Thank you for the story of your daughter with us, Saulo! I take it you live in the United States, is that right?

Hi Tim!
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! I loved your podcast on St Patrick’s Day traditions.
I didn’t know St Patrick had this brilliant idea of teaching about the Trinity by using a shamrock. Thanks again for your time and efforts in keeping recording wonderful podcasts like this one.
By the way, let’s go green.
Take care,

Thank YOU for your nice comment and participation, Karla! It’s participants like you that make it all worthwhile. So, did you wear anything green today?

Dear Teacher Tim,

I love the explanation about Saint Patrick’s Day in the United States.

Thank you, Vera! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

Hi Tim! Tks for telling us Saiby Patrick’s story.
