Nancy J.'s Story

ST.URHO DAY, MAR.16 is a NATIONAL HOLIDAY for FINN,s in U.S.A.. ST.URHO became our Saint for driving the grasshoppers out of FINLAND! Thus saving the grape vineyards. We wear green and purple to honor the day! This desert I baked using green apples & cranberries,is to honor the day!
Traditionally a St URHO feast is a fish,pie,chowder or soup.
O.K. We all know grapes do not grow in Finland. LOL- Could it be that they wanted to get a head start ST PATTY"S DAY!YES,Finn's do have a great sense of humor.
On the 17th..I can take off the purple,for ST.PATTY'S DAY and
the wearing of the GREEN

Sure are a lot of male saints.... all in a row like bowling pins! I'm just kidding, don't get mad at me friends. I love my saints, espcially St Lorenzo, the patron saint of cooks...
