Dear Pres Community,

It is such a blessed time of year, isn’t it! The lush hills are full of life and the Lenten season is upon us.

You may be asking yourselves, “Nano, why are you writing to us? Don’t we usually write to you?” Well frankly, I’ve had enough of that.

You all are constantly complaining to me and begging for assistance. Can’t a sister voice her own opinion sometimes?

My main grievance right now is the way you Americans treat St. Patrick’s Day. Yes I said “Patrick,” NOT “Patty.”

I know the majority of your nation is white, making most of you at least probably 1/64th Irish, but if you’re going to claim the heritage, you have to at least try to portray genuine Irish culture with pride, and not just one day a year.

That’s right. All of you wearing loud shamrock beads, obnoxious neon orange wigs or kilts on March 17, I see you. And your awful Irish accent can’t hide you.

Allow me give you some wise advice only your beloved Nano, a true Irish woman, can give: Stop dyeing everything green and using this day as an excuse to overindulge.

Instead, remember St. Patrick’s Day is a religious feast day. Use this as an opportunity to stick to your Lenten promises!

If you really are dedicated to celebrating Irish culture, do your research on St. Patrick’s origins and learn something new, such as a traditional recipe for Irish soda bread or corned beef and cabbage. You might be surprised to find that you don’t actually know everything! You Americans…

Have a blessed feast day and may the luck of the Irish be with you!

Sincerely,

Nano Nagle
