Quick aside – happy St. Patrick’s Day to those who celebrate it. When I was little and in primary school, it was a fun day, everyone wore green, and we got to colour in sheets with shamrocks and leprechauns. But by the time I was twelve or thirteen, it stopped making sense. There was exactly one kid in the class who had any Irish ancestors, and it kind of seemed weird to have a day to celebrate one nationality (and one that was a tiny minority in the area), but none for the ones that were better represented. These days, it’s just an excuse to drink green beer, lol.
