You would *think*, sigh.

Today we went to a local tavern and listened to the irish band and had corned beef and cabbage. That was neat.

KetchupQueen, I have all of my future kids names picked out too (well I want two or three and have 2 of each picked). Picked them out one day when I was bored in homeroom junior year of high school. And I haven't even had an actual boyfriend.

Cool, hand-me-downs will be a snap, you won't have to re-label them.

For the same reason I didn't wear a shred of green today. Because I'm not Irish. In fact, I'm the exact opposite of Irish. I'm English.

Actually, tt&t is opposite of Ireland, since New Zealand is antipodal to Ireland.

Hey, there's an Antipodes Island! I never noticed that before on my globe.

Seriously. I didn't even skip off tonight's group meeting to drink as I have an exam tomorrow. Sadly, I doubt anyone there will believe me.

Not that I've done any studying, mind, but I'm also not drunk. Gotta watch my weight. Or something.

I'm not Irish. I am a Mongrel Englander. A citizen.

A story from my parents: My mother knew an Irish woman in the town we lived in England. The Irish woman was surprised that English people behaved totally normally to her; in Ireland, this was rare. English and Irish rarely became friendly.

Since then, I've tried to make sure that whatever thing some angry people have going, I'm not a part of it.

Please. Wear green. Don't wear green. No matter. Just don't use your nationality, real or generational as an reason.

My grandma, as I said somewhere, grew up in the Irish section of Liverpool, and apparently the St. Patrick's Day parade used to degenerate into rock-throwing there. [Frown]

My point was that I have no reason to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. My home country is the United States, not Ireland. My ethnic heritage is primarily English, among other things, that does not include, so far as we know, even the slightest hint of Irish. It's not that I "hate the Irish", and the English-as-opposite-of-Irish thing was a joke. The fact is, I don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day because I don't feel I have any kind of ties to the holiday.

I don't celebrate Cinco de Mayo because I'm neither Mexican nor of Mexican descent. I don't celebrate Hannukah because I'm not Jewish. I don't celebrate Kwanzaa because I'm not black. I don't celebrate St. Valentine's Day because I'm single. I certainly don't have a problem with other people celebrating whatever holidays they like. You could all start celebrating a Klingon holiday, for all I care. But I don't think I should feel compelled to celebrate a holiday I have no ties to simply because everyone else is.
