Every year we hear the refrain that you don’t need to be Irish to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The modern spirit of the holiday is more about fun and green beer than honoring Saint Patrick himself. But it doesn’t hurt to make the day feel a little more reverent if you happen to find out that you can trace your roots back to the Emerald Isle.
