It’s that time of year again, when nearly every American enthusiastically claims some fraction of Irish lineage. I’ve always believed myself to be of mostly Scottish (by way of Canada) and German descent, but sure as a shamrock this very week my aunt shared some genealogy papers clearly proving my grandmother’s grandmother’s grandfather hailed from Ireland, circa 1810.
That’s 1.5625% for those keeping track. But regardless of heritage, I love any excuse to party, especially in celebration of other cultures, so bring on the Lucky Charms and corned beef & cabbage! Come Saturday I’ll be sporting head-to-toe green and chasing rainbows like a regular leprechaun. Naturally, our homeschool readings will also deviate a bit, inclining instead towards all things fact or folklore hailing from the Emerald Isle.
