Young and all excited for the festival. St.Anthony certainly was a saint responsible for a lot of good things.

Cute young ladies. Nicely decorated door. Notice which I noted first!

Do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Portugal, also?

Re your comment on The Villages: I tend to be ironic, ironically on many occasions when irony is called for. :-)

@Lowell: No, we don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

Irony! That's what I thought! :-))
