How can you resist St. Patick's Day? In Morristown you can't really avoid it. We have one of the biggest parades in the state of NJ; the entire town is blocked off, and the streets are painted with shamrocks! There are parade watchers and partiers everywhere, and lines outside all the bars and restaurants.....starting way too early in day. Babies in strollers have big green hats, and everyone's wearing those white Irish cable knit wool sweaters. I love it when the kids all try to look as silly as possible...what is it about this holiday that inspires such goofiness? Is it all the beer?
