Today, everyone is Irish

Today is St. Patrick’s Day.

Yes, its origins stem from the Irish although St. Patrick may not even have been Irish but that’s another story. For the most part, it’s an American tradition to celebrate all things stereotypically Irish: green beer, green rivers, shamrock shirts, dancing, music, hats and beads.

What a novel idea!
