As New Year's Eve approaches I would just like to leave this meme right here.
We cannot ignore the obvious. Mexico and Ireland have solid drinking traditions. Whether with family or friends the culture of passing time (all night perhaps) while sipping alcoholic beverages runs deep. And the likelyhood it might end in a circle of folks with their arms around each other singing is high. I read once that Ireland is also the largest consumer, per capita, of Corona beer outside of Mexico and whiskey, I can attest, is very popular in Mexico. Both cultures drink A LOT of beer. And what are the only two occasions that Americans get together to drink excessively and celebrate something that has nothing to do with their history? Cinco de Mayo and St. Patrick's Day of course, except no one claims to be Mexican on Cinco de Mayo. Anyway, I steered off topic. If you have been so blessed as to have Irecan heritage and these special super powers, Salud and Sláinte!

A cultural Match Made in Heaven
Irish and Mexican folk have a TON in common and the two cultures really are like kindred spirits. This is my dumping ground for all things Mexi-irish, Ire-can, and Leprecano. I find infinite pleasure in digging up gems where our cultures intersect, compliment and occasionally differ. Please refer to my very first blog entry here to learn more about why this is a thing.
