Happy Bank Holiday

Ireland has a lovely tradition known as a Bank Holiday four times a year: the first Mondays in May, June, August, and October. Nationwide there is no work or school. So what do the bank holidays celebrate? Absolutely nothing. I suppose they are called that because the banks and other public offices are closed. I think every country should do the same!

On my bank holiday today I slept in, cooked, basked in the on-and-off sunshine by walking around (I actually didn’t need a sweater when I went outside this morning…it eventually got colder, but I’ll take what I can get), and went to the cinema to see The Lucky One.

I went to Belfast for the day on Saturday to the new Titanic museum and will post pictures soon. It was interesting, but I left feeling very grateful I live in Dublin!
