Potato Famine in the 1840's! Really - add on the oppression of theEnglish land owners. One side of my family departed in those years.Thankfully for them a very good move - in Australia being free they madegreat success in many spheres.B J Hunnicut aka Colin
My uncle lives in Ireland, it's a beautiful country!
Interesting. I don't do much for Halloween anymore since I don't have small kids.
I think they celebrate All Saints Day like the rest of Europe... the Catholic part of course
oh really? I did not know that - how interesting!www.scribblesandblogs.blogspot.co.uk
Yay to the Irish:D We're big Halloween fans over here! Hope you have a good one, Adam:) Are you going as Jon Snow?
No I might go as him next year if he returns from the dead. Which he will, because he is Jon Targaryen, First of His Name, King of the Andals and the First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms, and Protector of the Realm.
Of all the places I'd like to visit, Ireland is my first choice.Have a fun, safe Halloween....
So the grumpy cat in the pic has the Irish to blame haha
That is quite interesting!
This I knew :). A few sides of my family came to Australia about that time as free settlers..
I love Halloween but it is becoming much too commercial.
wow wow lovely cat!!!
Happy Halloween to you and Daisy, Adam! I don't do much for Halloween now that I'm no longer teaching. I truly miss all the sugared fun. I had third graders, and most years a few kids I had had in previous years who were now in middle or high school would come back for our parties. I did't mind that they were older. And I didn't mind giving out treats to some older spooks when I lived in a neighborhood where kids still trick-or-treated. I say lighten up and enjoy seeing people of all ages having fun!I'll eat Halloween treats anytime, anywhere! I don't think a year went by that I didn't break into a bag of treats and eat some! LOLI wish FDR had lived to pass that second Bill of Rights. America would be a much kinder, gentler place if he had succeeded!
My best wishes for you in this Halloween!I know this fact! Because I love it this datexxwww.sakuranko.com
