What Saint Bridget Said To Saint Patrick

What Saint Bridget Said To Saint Patrick

I just read this charming tale & want to pass it on. Happy Saint Patrick's Day!                                                                        Part one

"St. Bridget – who is Ireland’s other favorite saint – complained to St. Patrick that young men were taking far too long to propose marriage to girls. St. Patrick thought about this problem and came up with the solution that once every four years women should be able to propose to men. He said that if a man then refuses, he should pay a fine. He could choose between giving the girl he refused a silk dress or 100 pounds. That tradition sill holds to this day. "

Looking forward in visiting Ireland this Summer with my husband John, while in Ireland I will try to find out about this tradition and post my findings in part two this fall. 

May the Luck of the Irish always be with you!
