Samhain! GO BRÀCH!
PS: I don't really speak Irish; I cheated and used Google Translate. I am 1/4 Irish, but I'm American, so I'm not sure if that really counts by European standards. :P
The dude in the video pronounces Samhain wrong.
Many Americans are part Irish. If you're curious, you should look into where exactly your Irish ancestry came from.
@GraceAndGlory (After a quick google search) ...Oh, so *that's* how it's pronounced. Damn, it's a shame the Britannic Celts never got the chance to develop their own alphabet.
As for my Irish side, it was my paternal grandmother who was Irish. We used to tease him all the time about his bald spot, until he shaved it all off; then we made skinhead jokes and jokes about Dr. Evil from Austin Powers (he's clean shaven, since he has a white collar job). A tenth of America *is* Irish, I'm quite familiar with the demographics of my country; we're all mutts, somehow, some way, and I see no reason to deny or feel remorse for that. :P
Hard to think that the English treated the Irish so bad that there are more Irish here in the US than there are in Ireland, but, England does have a history of hating natives; whether they're comparatively primitive in nature (Welsh, East Indians, Aborigines, Zulus), ancient conservative monarchies (Qing China, Medieval France, also East Indians in some cases), Fellow Europeans (Argentina and South Africa), or even fellow Englishmen (the birth and continued existence of my entire country), the English seem to not be huge fans of anyone not directly affiliated with them. Ah, well; their loss!
