Top 5 Irish Blessings For St. Patrick’s Day
No matter what culture, tribe, creed, or society you live in, there always seems to be an esoteric blessing or proverb to go along with them. The Irish are no different when it comes to this.
Here are the Top 5 Blessings/ Proverbs (we think) for you on St. Paddy's Day!
If you don't watch your mouth, it could impact your nose! This is the equivalent to the English saying, "Think before you speak."
You may have noticed that when it comes to Irish blessings, many are tongue and cheek. This 'blessing' denotes that you should continue to enjoy yourself even after death.
This is a fairly well-known, or even popular blessing that uses two different meanings. The word 'want' means to desire something. The second half of the quote means to lack something that you desire.
This blessing also has a double meaning. Fall in and fall out, in this case, means two different things. Fall in denotes collapse or falling inside. Fall out denotes to argue or stop being friends with someone. So, in the end, you should have a good roof over your head and surround yourself with loving family and friends.
Someone once said that a man with an experience is never at the mercy of a man with just an argument. The proverb magnifies that by the time you finally get enough experience with something, you can't use the knowledge anymore. Much like a bald man who no longer has the use of a comb.
