I never notice anyone saying they are American. It's always Irish, French, Italian, English..........What about American? Why doesn't this country get a nationality? After all our ancestors left those other countries for a better life here in America.

Talk to mh DH that's his first response always. I don't think it's a matter of disrespect but respect for where your ancestors actually came from. for every family tree the roots start somewhere.

Irish and Italian babies are the cutest - can you tell I married an Italian? Actually my husband's dad is straight of the boat too, but from outside of Venice and my MIL is mixed so my husband wound up with blond hair and blue eyes. My boys all have Irish first names and also have blue eyes and blond hair so when people hear our VERY Italian last name it is funny.

I'm American when I leave this country and visit other ones. Here, I'm Irish because I already know we are all Americans. My family still lives in Ireland and to them I'm their American cousin.

Maybe because my ancestors are from Poland and French Canada I don't feel the need to be 200% anything.

Seriously since 9/11 it's just gotten stronger and stronger to me that my kids know they are Americans with Polish and French Canadian heritage or ya and Portuguese on my DHs side. LOL

But also because of communities around here that have rejected people because they are not ____. It really cracks me up when they are generations removed from their origin.

Happy Heritage!!!

We go on our first night every trip. It's our family tradition and it's always a great time. As you can see from my name I'm Irish. First generation and the only American in my family of 7. My parents were born and raised in Cork, and my 4 siblings. Then they moved to America and I was born 5 months later I like to take my kids to RR so they can experience a part of their heritage

Same here. My entire family was born over there except for me, the only American. My parents and siblings don't even have American citizenship and all have great accents. So I'm American and proud but also very proud of my Irish heritage

My kids think of themselves as Americans, but since my dad was straight off the boat and my mom's parents actually met on the boat my Irish culture was a lot stronger than theirs is especially since they are mixed. My father was actually one of the electricians who worked on the Twin Towers and he took me in there when I was just a baby. I was almost glad he died before they were destroyed, he would have been devastated.

Gee, never would have guessed you were Irish My mom's family was from Cork, but my dad was from Mayo. Love the family of 7, so Irish Catholic. My dad was from a family with 8 kids and they were all just as prolific, except my dad who got the mumps during puberty which killed his chances of having kids, which is why I was adopted and how I would up 200% Irish. My mom's family only had 5 kids but between my mom and dad's side I wound up with 46 first cousins. Freakin' rabbits I tell ya'.

Yes that would be sad for him.

I wasn't trying to start something on the heritage thing. I just think that sometimes being born here and people proud of their heritage that being an American born citizen gets lost. I wasn't feeling disrespect just wanting to bring the topic to thought.

OH NO!!! I apologize as I just realized that I took thoughts off Disney planning. How could I do such a horrible thing.

Let the Disney talk commence!!!!


Where is that dancing banana when you need it?
