Here we are in the month of March. I think March is a great month, it signals the end of winter and the beginning of spring. Here in Montreal there is a distinct difference between the beginning and end of the month as the snow thaws and spring begins to reveal itself ever so slightly. Spring is like a new beginning and in Montreal it always kicks off with the St. Patrick’s day parade. The parade is a joyous celebration where everyone is Irish – all the vast cultural communities head to the streets for a grand celebration. Usually, remarkably the weather is gorgeous (sunny and mild) signalling that spring is here. Of course it could also be the ‘special’ beverages that make the crowd feel a tad bit toastier.
Of course, once upon a time I was one of the lively (please read slightly inebriated) parade goers screaming and dancing at the sidelines. They were fun times, and public drinking seems almost tolerated at this one event in Montreal as long as things remain peaceful. I think the rowdiest I got was maybe singing slightly off tune. Here’s to Saint Patrick’s day being a week away and to celebrate we will be hosting a giveaway right here on the Boutique Karma blog! I’m so excited..
First I’ll let you know what the prize is:
Coffee Cuff - Lucky Clover
You could win your very own Lucky Clover coffee cuff to strut around with on Parade day, going to the office, on your walk around town, while your kids are swimming in the pool, etc. It’s a super cute cuff with an Irish flair, do not be fooled, you could use this one year-round. The contest will run until Midnight Friday March 5th, and the coffee cuff will be sent out on Saturday morning in order for the winner to receive as rapidly as possible.
