Americans in America are celebrating being Irish today.
They have chosen to be Irish instead of American as being American isn’t fun any more.
One American said:
“We used to love being American and telling everyone that we were American. Sadly, those days have gone and when we’re abroad now, we try and get away with pretending to be Canadian. As it’s St Patrick’s Day, we thought that we may as well be Irish because that’s a lot more fun. You get to drink a lot, dance a lot and have more of a laugh. We’re not sure who’s in charge over there but who cares? It’s better than being over here.”
One Irish person said:
“Top of da day to ya etc etc,” and other stereotypical phrases.
