    I’m nor Irish, but I am part Scottish on my dad’s side. I don’t usually celebrate St. Patrick’s day, I usually wear green or paint my nails especially for it but other than that it’s a normal day for me. I think my love of it faded in school when kids would pinch you as hard as they could and in college when everyone would be drunk beyond comprehension ALL NIGHT LONG, lol.
