St. Patrick’s Day Recap

March 24, 2016

As many of you already know, there’s no holiday quite like St. Patrick’s Day in Savannah – or in the life of a Savannah McCarthy in particular! This year was so much fun to continue the tradition in the parade and have the entire family surrounding us.

Since it was Lillian’s very first St. Patrick’s Day, it was extra special to see her light up at the parade. Rhett, of course, was a proud Big Brother showing off his veteran parade status. Each year we grow to treasure this tradition more and more!

Every March 17th, has plenty of events leading up to it keeping the McCarthy plan rooted in family and heritage. It’s more than tacky shamrock sweaters and green beer for us, it’s a celebration of generations. Each year the entire family walks in the Savannah parade, and beforehand we make it a point to stop for a mimosa or Bloody Mary at the Mansion on Forsyth Park. Once the parade is over, we don’t bother with downtown shenanigans. We all make our way to the family matriarch’s house on the marsh and and have lunch together. Just us, no mardi gras beads in sight!

Year after year I can’t wait to see how Rhett and Lillian come to value this day as I have come to value it.
