St. Gingers Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day from the Nielson home to yours.
In honor of the Irish, here are four wonderful reasons to love redheads:

1. Redheads rarely turn grey or at least take longer to get around to it.
 In fact, most redheads skip grey completely, going from red to blonde to white.

2. Redheads bring honor and luck. 
In Poland, if you pass three redheads,  you'll win the lottery. 
Ancient Greeks dyed their hair red to show courage, 
and in Denmark, it's an honor to have a red-haired child.

3. Studies have found that redheads are more susceptible to skin pain.
As a result, studies have found that gingers require more anesthesia
for dental or medical procedures than other hair colors,

 4. Although in Ireland, up to ten percent of the population are 
redheads around the globe, just two percent of people
 are blessed with flaming locks.

I love my gingers!
