In honor of the day...
"May your troubles be as few and far between
As my grandmother's teeth." —Irish toast
"May you work like you don't need the money,
Love like you've never been hurt,
And dance like no one is watching." —Irish toast
"May you have warm words on a cold evening,
A full moon on a dark night,
And the road downhill all the way to your door." —Irish toast
