Today's toast

This is stolen straight from the Writers' Almanac:

Today is Ivy Day in the Republic of Ireland, commemorating Charles Stewart Parnell, the Irish statesman who died on this day in 1891. Parnell led the Irish struggle for Home Rule from Britain, and they called him "the uncrowned king of Ireland." Today is called Ivy Day because Parnell's emblem was a sprig of green ivy, worn on the lapel. James Joyce was obsessed with Parnell, and his short story, "Ivy Day in the Committee Room," was set on this day.
