Everyone Is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, Right?

I’m mostly German and Irish and I have a little Welsh in me as well. I don’t wear an Irish or German hat and I don’t have an Irish or German bumper sticker on my car either. But when it comes to St. Patrick’s Day, I dress the part and celebrate by eating corned beef and cabbage and enjoying an adult beverage or two. OK, maybe a lot more than two. I have no problem with people just being Irish for St. Patrick’s Day, in fact I think it’s awesome that every celebrates with us. I know they just use it as an excuse to drink, but what the hell, you only live once, right? Every year, my wife and I go to a St. Patrick’s Day party at our church. It’s usually held on the Saturday before the big day. So, that means the party is this Saturday. Even though it’s at our church, don’t let that fool you. It becomes a “drinkfest” and is always a great time. So I’m sitting here thinking about how much fun we are going to have this year and a question popped in my head. What other holidays are out there that you can pretend you are a different nationality just to celebrate with them? Yeah, I couldn’t come up with one either.
If you are going to a St. Patrick’s Day party this weekend, or even on the big day itself, please don’t drink and drive, enjoy the Irish traditions, and Erin Go Bragh!
