When I was young my mother dressed my older, auburn-haired brother as a leprechaun on St. Patrick's Day and sent him to school with a plastic cauldron thing full of Worther's Original candies (the ones with gold foil). It was so much fun, I've since wanted to do the same thing for my own redhead child that I just knew I was going to have.
I was right about having a redhead child, but unfortunately I didn't get to keep her.
And every St. Patrick's Day it just hurts. *sigh*
