Carlton Happenings

As we all know, March 17 is St. Patrick’s Day. It is the Irish celebration of the day St. Patrick is said to have cast out the snakes from Ireland. But there is also another celebration the day before, St. Urho’s Day, on March 16.

The Urho legend includes the story of St. Urho casting out the frogs by the power of his voice, which he got by drinking feelia sour (sour whole milk) and eating kala mojakka (fish soup).

Happy St. Patrick’s Day and Happy St. Urho’s Day to all!
