Sheri,

The only Irish I may have may be from eons ago, when the Vikings were around.  On my father's side, my grandfather had traced the family back to the Viking that came to Russia.

However, we celebrate regardless.  A

Those are interesting facts surround St. Paddy's Day, Sheri!  For one reason or another, my mother always sent me to school wearing orange on St. Patrick's Day when I was a kid.
