Though I have red hair, my folks are of more Scottish descent than Irish.
Doesn't matter today though, when everyone wears green and well, we redheads look great in Kelly Green... anyway... as my mum would say, "In the end, we're all Celts," or something to that effect.
Have some green beer, or a car bomb, or whatever if you're of age to do so and wear green (originally blue was the color, but who's keeping track) if you don't want to get pinched.
In other news, the beloved Sir Terry Pratchett passed away March 12, 2015.
He was one of my absolutely favourite authors. Here is his final sentiment, typed by his daughter:
Fellow author and friend Neil Gaiman was among those paying tribute to Sir Terry, writing on his website: "There was nobody like him. I was fortunate to have written a book with him, when we were younger, which taught me so much."
Gaiman added: "I will miss you, Terry, so much."
Niel Gaiman is another of my favourite authors... both of these excerpts were taken from the BBC News site.
