St. Patrick’s Day

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

Friday, March 17, 1911:  Today is St. Patrick’s day. The day to be green and feel green. Ruth and I went to Blanche Bryson’s party. We went with Rachel and Alvin Oakes, going out a lane, that I had never been in before, and because of this, I was goosey enough to tumble down. I had a lot of fun at the party and I suppose everyone else did too. We took our departure about half past one o’clock a.m.
