Kiss Me, I Like My Sweater

I wore green today by accident, and now people keep wishing me a happy St. Patrick's Day. Honestly, I just like this sweater, I didn't realize it was a holiday at all until I got to work. I'm not virulently opposed to St. Patrick's Day like I am to Valentine's Day, but it's a holiday I've always completely ignored. I'm fond of the Irish as a general rule (I'm a sucker for a fun accent), but I have no desire to appropriate their culture. And saying "Everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's Day" is like saying "Everyone's Jewish on Yom Ha Shoa."
