St. Patrick’s Day, 1912 and 2012

16-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today: 

Sunday, March 17, 1912:  Today is St. Patrick’s Day. I had some green on this morning. It was so nice out today. Just like spring. I was going away this afternoon, but didn’t go after all.

Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:

Sometimes I’m surprised how similar some things are across the years.

The weather was  beautiful a hundred years ago–just like it is today.

Grandma wore green a hundred years ago– just like I’m wearing green today.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
