HAPPY SAINT PATRICK’S DAY

Dear God and Saint Patrick,
Please forgive me of my sins
and please remove all the evil
and snakes from my life and
the whole wide world. Thank
You for Your continued blessings
and support. Amen

This year— I was privileged again to
chop carrots and potatoes for massive
amounts of Corned Beef and Cabbage
Stew to honor Saint Patrick. I also learned
that there is a curse to Saint Patrick’s Day.

Oh— yes— I had to dig deep to really
grasp the hottest spring celebration’s
curse. It seems that glossing over the
Irish life and really not appreciating the
Irish People’s passion for the struggle of
life is the curse of Saint Patrick’s Day.

You have to fully embrace the famines,
reread Angela’s Ashes, and understand
being Irish isn’t bottled beer or
various shades of green. There’s a long
history of civil wars, wage strikes, religious feuds,
discrimination, and the list goes on.
You definitely don’t want to be a “plastic Paddy”
(just consider the film Crazy Rich Asians
but imagine it’s about Irish people.)

As in: “same shit — different country”

There are black foot Irish, and white linen Irish,
gypsies, and lots of expats who sought refuge
from hot messes in their home country
and married Irish. Being Irish isn’t just Catholic
or Protestant. Being Irish isn’t just liberal or
conservative. Being Irish means you live
life to the fullest daily, you put in your best effort
for survival, and you strive to make the world
a better place.

XOXO! JML
