Three is the Magic Number

St. Patrick’s Day

In New Orleans on St. Patrick’s Day – Cabbages, carrots and potatoes are traditional for St. Patrick’s parade since the Irish’s most known meal is corned beef and cabbage, which includes potatoes (an Irish national vegetable) and the carrots for color.

 CORRECTION —————————————-

The Green–Cabbage—represents the Catholics
The Orange–Carrots–represents the Protestants
The White–Potato—represents Unity

Just like the flag.

CORRECTION —————————————-

I’m Irish – and have never known Corned Beef to be an Irish dish. Bacon & Cabbage –
Yes, but Corned Beef – NO.

Also, how about

GREEN – THE LAND
WHITE – THE PEOPLE
GOLD – THEIR HEARTS

[Inuit,=house]. The Eskimos traditionally had three types of houses. A summer house, which was basically a tent, a winter house, which was usually partially dug into the ground and covered with earth; and a snow or ice house. The latter was a dome-shaped dwelling constructed of blocks of snow placed in an ascending spiral with a low tunnel entrance. Although it can provide adequate protection for weeks in severe cold, it was used almost exclusively as a temporary shelter while traveling.

George Bernard Shaw (1856- 1950)

In my dreams is a country where the State is the Church and the Church the people: three in one and one in three. It is a commonwealth in which work is play and play is life: three in one and one in three. It is a temple in which the priest is the worshiper and the worshiper the worshipped: three in one and one in three. It is a godhead in which all life is human and all humanity divine: three in one and one in three.
