Being Irish

On March 17th – St. Patrick’s Day, many people like to be considered Irish to enjoy in the celebration of the day. This holiday — St Patrick’s Day is a global celebration of Irish culture on or around March 17. It particularly remembers St Patrick, one of Ireland’s patron saints, who ministered Christianity in Ireland during the fifth century.

With so many people of Irish descent living in nearly every part of the globe that is why it the holiday is so wide spread. Yet, those people who don’t consider themselves Irish love to join in the celebration. Yet, it is amazing using DNA testing and genealogical research, there are many people who are Irish. The wearing of the ‘green‘ become the color of choice on March 17th. If you see someone in ‘orange’ they represent the Northern Irish (protestant religion rather than Catholic).

In celebration of March 17th, it would be good for you to check with some research if there is any Irish heritage on the family tree. If there is, further investigate it and see when they became part of the family. My own Irish side did not come to America as Irish but instead had married into an English family, lived in Manchester, England, long before coming to America.
