This Month
March - Celtic Celebrations
Irish Gifts


February's trivia question was:

There is a traditional Scottish token of love & devotion, usually in the form of a silver brooch, that looks like two entwined hearts with a crown on top. What is this symbol called?

The correct answer is....The Luckenbooth! The winner is Terri Schurr. There is a $20 gift certificate waiting at the store for Terri!

March's trivia question is:

St. Patrick, Ireland's patron saint, was not Irish by birth! Where was he  born?

  If you think you know the answer to the question, send an email to with "March Trivia" in the subject line.  The prize this month is a $20 Things Celtic gift certificate.

The winner will be drawn from all the entries with the correct answer. Good luck!
