Top Of The Morning
Photograph - Photography
The green shamrocks on my favorite coffee mug inspire daydreams of beautiful Ireland at this time of year. What does "Top of the morning!" mean? When you wish someone the "top of the morning" you are wishing them the best part of the day. To which, they should reply "And the balance of the day to you!" This saying actually comes from New Zealand because they wish you "at the top part of the morning." Reference: wiki.answers.com I was personally surprised by this information and thought I would pass it on to my friends here in the USA. This greeting is frequently used by many on St. Patrick's Day assuming it is a saying in Ireland. Regardless, I will probablycontinue to say, "Top of the morning!" to everyone I meet on St. Patrick's Day.
