Giftee's Should Dither a Little

March is National Irish-American Heritage month, but there is one day that stands out - St. Patrick's Day.  Bring on the pub crawls, shamrocks, and of course those lucky leprechauns.  For on this day, we all seem to be a wee bit Irish!

In honor of the official "green" month, I came across these Irish gift giving traditions:
  •  Cost doesn't matter.  Make it personal.
  •  White lillies are bad, they are used for funerals.
  •  For the giftee, open in front of the gifter and don't accept it  right off the bat, dither a little.

And remember......Never, ever iron a four leaf clover, because you don't want to press your luck!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
