Happy St. Patrick's Day!

British Isles Tribute:- Uk Exclusive

Ireland / The Irish Teddy Bear

Click on the above heading to order this bear.


Saint Patrick is believed to have been born in the late fourth century,
and is often confused with Palladius,
a bishop who was sent by Pope Celestine in 431 to be
the first bishop to the Irish believers in Christ.

Saint Patrick was the patron saint and national apostle of Ireland
who is credited with bringing christianity to Ireland.
Most of what is known about him comes from his two works,
the Confessio, a spiritual autobiography,
and his Epistola, a denunciation of British mistreatment of Irish christians.
Saint Patrick described himself as a "most humble-minded man,
pouring forth a continuous paean of thanks to his Maker
for having chosen him as the instrument
whereby multitudes who had worshipped idols
and unclean things had become the people of God."

Tucky the Woodpecker
From the forest nearby,
the friends hear a "tap, tap, tap, tap, tap" sound.
In the forest, TUCKY the woodpecker is pecking at an old oak-tree.

"It´s spring!"

Do not panic the Steiff Woodpecker comes without the noise,
I promise no tapping.
