Happy St. Patrick's Day

I am not one to celebrate March 17th. I am not Irish nor do I know a lot about St. Patrick. But I did see this adorable fruit rainbow with a pot of gold (I used caramel hershey kisses) and knew I had to make it today! I think it turned out great and my kids (who love love love fruit) will think I am a rock star.
If you are looking for some St. Patricks Day information, I found this over at This explains why people get a little crazy on March 17th!

The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over 1,000 years. On St. Patrick's Day, which falls during the Christian season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. Lenten prohibitions against the consumption of meat were waived and people would dance, drink and feast--on the traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage.
