What am I celebrating today?

sithney

Today is St. Sithney’s Day – he’s the one on the left with the doggies.  As the Breton legend goes, Sithney was asked by the Creator to be the patron saint of young girls seeking husbands.  Sithney is reported to have demurred, saying he would get no rest taking on a job like that and that he would rather be the patron saint of mad dogs.  And he is.
