On Being Part Irish

Well, I'm part Irish, but I'm also part Italian, English, German, and French. So, I get to wear green for St. Patrick's Day, and red for St. Joseph's Day.

I have no idea what colors to wear or when to wear them for my other nationalities. Does anyone else know? It's okay if you don't. You could just tell me if you wear green for St. Patrick's Day and/or red for St. Joseph's Day.

Or, if you want, you could go over to http://acmeauthorslink.blogspot.com/ Wednesday and read my blog about Handouts.


  1. I'm a quarter Dane, but I couldn't even tell you the country's colors - isn't that sad?
    Well, my grandparents may be from Denmark, but I guess I'm just American now.

  2. We're mostly Irish over here, so it's green from us.

    No clue about other colors.

    I'm not Irish, but I have kissed Irish lassies. Forget about the pinching.

  4. I'm not Irish, but I enjoy joining in the fun of the day, so I wear green. I'm primarily Dutch and German. Not sure if we have colors.

  5. I'm wearing green today and fixing corned beef and cabbage. I've never heard of St. Joseph's day.

  6. Okay, I admit, I've never heard of St. Joseph's Day. I am clueless about my heritage. English, I think.

  7. I wear green on St. Patrick’s day, but not necessarily due to my heritage – it’s because I don’t want to be pinched!

  8. Oh, Jane, that is something I have always hated. That was always my main reason for wearing green. I don't know who started that pinching tradition, but if I ever meet that person I'll.. I'll...well,
    I'll pinch them--yeah that's what I'll do!

  9. I love being an American mutt- lol- yes there is Irish in me- along with Scots, English, Welsh, Polish and Croatian- and those are the ones we know about. ;) Cheers~
