Although not the kind of holiday that warrented a vacation from school or work I grew up in a family that celebrated St. Patrick's Day "religiously." My mother identified strongly with her Irish roots, which are nominal at best. As a result wearing green and eating corned beef and cabbage on (or around) March 17 are traditions in my life. My husband is thoroughly Polish and German, but he enjoys a good corned beef dinner as much as I enjoy golabki (cabbage rolls). Both these meals are made from meat and cabbage, but are quite different.
Likewise, all of us who wander over here have blogging in common. But in blogging our similiarities also become our differences. And then our differences have a way of leading us right back to things in common.
