Kiss me I’m Irish
on February 24, 2015
I used to work with an Irish American gentleman and he took St. Patrick off every year. He treated that day like a national holiday. Though I lived in Chicago at the time, where they still turn the Chicago River green, he wanted everyone to celebrate the day with him. He would ride the subways all day with the other Irish Americans celebrating going from Irish bar to Irish bar. After reading this book I understand why he was so proud of his heritage and traditions.
This is a fun book. It tells you why we should love the Irish! It describes all the great things the Irish have done, invented, inspired, and created. It has easy to read short chapters filled with little tidbits of information. It would be a great book for an Irish American that loves their heritage and traditions or anyone who wants a quick history of the Irish people from their immigration to the US, their contributions in building America and all the great things about them and their history.
Reading this book will make everyone want to be Irish because according to this book they have been involved in everything and have been the best at everything. It would great to be Irish….sorry to say I’m not!
