Memoir Writing Prompt: Memories of St. Patrick’s Day

Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day. In my grade school days at Charleston Elementary outside of Wellsboro, Pennsylvania, we celebrated every holiday with flair. St. Patrick’s Day held a myriad of options. The teachers could always introduce one more story of a magical leprechaun or a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. It could have been first, second or third grade when we experienced quite a magical St. Patrick’s Day. That year, all the snow had melted and spring had done its best to rise triumphant over winter. We spent every recess that day looking for the special 4-leaf clover. I don’t think anyone was successful, but it gave us children lots of fun anticipation. Of course, what would the day be without using green construction paper to cut out 4-leaf clovers and leprechaun hats to wear home. I was 9 or 10 years old when I saw “Darby O’Gill and the Little People” at the Arcadia theater. Lots of songs, dancing and, of course, little people.

Memoir Writing Prompt: Think back on all your childhood days. Does St. Patrick’s Day hold any special memory for you? Write about it.

Today’s Memoir Prompt: Will you do anything special today? Maybe you’ll venture out and have a green beer or green margarita. Or maybe you’ll pick up a grandchild from school and hear how he/she heard a leprechaun story. Write the happenings of your day. And remember…

Enjoy writing for your generations to come.
