Have you noticed the migrating birds have returned from their winter vacays down south? That’s when I know old man winter has left. None of this Wiarton Willie stuff for me, thanks. Show me Canada geese, red-winged blackbirds and tree swallows the real harbingers of spring, then I’ll believe that spring has really sprung… And it has in my neck of the woods.. They’re all back! Woo-hoo!
In honour of spring and to inspire you and help you change your headspace from stuffy long sleeves and layers to fun spring and summer freshness and coolness, here are some t-shirt designs that fit the bill – for the whole family.
To create custom t-shirts for kids, simply choose either Gildan 200B Kids Ultra Cotton or Hanes 5450 Tagless T-Shirt models. Both come in great colours, perfect for the wee-folks in your life!
Saint Patrick’s Day is but 15 days away. Did you know that Montreal has had the longest running parade in all of Canada? Since 1824 we’ve celebrated with a yearly parade. In the US, the longest running parade has been in Boston (shocker!). Yep, they’ve been true to their tradition since 1737!
This year, the Montreal parade will be held on Sunday, March 14th at noon, along Ste-Catherine street, starting at Fort. You can get more information here. Here are links to other parades happening across Canada: Toronto, ON, St. John’s, NFLD, Quebec City, QC and Ottawa, ON. Normally there’s one in Vancouver too, but the Vancouver Paralympic 2010 games will be on.
Everyone is Irish on Saint Paddy’s Day, so what will you be up to? Do you go all out and deck yourself in green? Drink beer at an Irish pub? Go to the parade with the kids? If you do, you’ll need a t-shirt. AND we’re offering a 15% discount on your order. Simply use the code “Irish” when you checkout. Get one for everyone you’ll be celebrating with. They can all be the same, of slightly different. The possibilities are endless! Come to Wordans.com and create something super creative and unique for Saint Patrick’s Day 2010.
I personally like things a bit more low-key. A quote from a famous Irish author would be nice.
I like these two from James Connolly (the second one reminds me of Canadians too):
Apostles of Freedom are ever idolized when dead, but crucified when alive.
The Irishman in English literature may be said to have been born with an apology in his mouth.
