Sarah Kliff on St. Patrick’s Day:
St. Patrick’s Day is, perhaps, the only holiday replete with false claims of national ancestry. Everyone is Irish, if just for a day.
Well, just for the record, I am seven-sixteenths Irish. Canters and Gunsons from Tipperary, Morans from Galway, Moodys from Derry, Lows from Armagh, and Dacys from….somewhere. How about you?
