Wearing of the…no, not actually

You’d think, probably, that I’d be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in some fashion. And, you know, I’m not actively opposed to it or anything, but see, I’m not Irish.

But, Ryan? Not Irish? Well, several generations back, it was spelled Rhine. Like the river.

As I recall, when my parents explained that despite our last name, I was mostly German and Scottish, I immediately wanted to know if there was a chance we had any Welsh ancestors. Why? Because I was in love with The Dark Is Rising, and I thought that having Welsh ancestry would somehow make me more like some of the characters.
