St. Urwho?

March 16, 2012 - Karin Elton
I guess it’s St. Urho’s Day today. Someone told me today that I had to celebrate that before I can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

According to sainturho.com the legend of St. Urho originated in northern Minnesota in the 1950s.

“The legend of St. Urho says he chased the grasshoppers out of ancient Finland, thus saving the grape crop and the jobs of Finnish vineyard workers.”

Gotta love that Finnish wine.
