Oh, the Wren, the Wren. . . the King of all Birds Print

There are a lot of interesting St. Stephen's Day traditions over in the British Isles. If you do a search on You tube, you can find them: fox hunting (which I thought was illegal now in the UK) or going for a swim in dark, freezing waters. There is even an eccentric group of Monte Python fans trying to combine a parade with the Ministry of Silly Walks.

But the strangest is the Wren Boy's parade in Dingle, Ireland. Complete with commentary about "mad Yanks". (Hey, I'm not the one dressed up like a 6 foot bird . . .)

And of course, followed by traditional Irish music and dancing by the "Wren boys"

Love the grass skirt. It's a good look on you . . .
