St. Patrick’s Day is Valentine’s Day’s Drunk Uncle

There’s no holiday that’s so polarizing as St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a celebration of Irish-ness, but for many people who aren’t Irish, this can be a bit of salt on the wound. St. Patrick’s Day is often accused of being just another Hallmark scam, however chances are you’ve only heard that coming from somebody who just isn’t Irish this year. We’ve all been there, some of us more often than others. You hear about all your Irish friends’ big Irish plans for St. Patrick’s Day and scoff while privately wondering what’s wrong with you that you ended up so un-Irish. A friend recently shared with me that they’ve NEVER been Irish on St. Parick’s day. “Just my luck,” he said, unluckily.
