Orange is the New Black

So did y'all know that today is the Twelfth? I don't just mean the random old date of July 12th either. The Twelfth is apparently a Protestant holiday in Northern Ireland - & a pretty big celebration.

Well, y'all know me. I love a celebration!

(& My Prince & I are both descendants of Irish ancestry. ;))

So head on over to ye olde Wikipedia to learn all about the historical significance of "Orangemen's Day"...

...& then celebrate along with me in your own colorful orange way, if you are so inclined!
