St. Patrick wasn't Irish and could have been of Italian heritage.

But he helped the Irish and is therefore celebrated by them.

Nice try at crapping on our parade, but FAIL.

Slainte.

May you have warm words on a cold evening.
A full moon on a dark night.
And the road downhill all the way to your door.

May the penguins feet be as light and fast as those from "reel around the sun!"

As long as the Irish understand their place (celebrating Italians). :wink:

+1 to everyone for not saying "St. Patty's Day"

Each and every year millions of Irish, Irish-ish and amateur alcoholics are needlessly distracted from their Holy Tradition of drinking themselves into a stupor in the name of Saint Patrick, a Roman Briton slave holding the dubious honour of bringing Christianity to an island that would use it as another convenient excuse to blatter the hell out of each other for centuries.

The source of this terrible distraction?

An onslaught of half-hearted, dyed-green references to St. Patrick’s Day as St. Patty’s Day.

It gnaws at them. It riles them up. It makes them want to fight… you know, more than usual.

IT'S PADDY, NOT PATTY. EVER.

SAINT PATRICK’S DAY? GRAND.

PADDY’S DAY? SURE, DEAD-ON.

ST. PAT’S? AYE, IF YE MUST.

ST. PATTY? NO, YE GOAT!

Paddy is derived from the Irish, Pádraig, hence those mysterious, emerald double-Ds.

Patty is the diminutive of Patricia, or a burger, and just not something you call a fella.

There is not a sinner in Ireland that would refer to a Patrick as “Patty”. It’s as simple as that.

once met the accordion player at a skate demo in either 1990 or 1991.

I would say that I skated with him, except that it was more like we were skating the same mini bowl and I was probably getting in his way.

After a day of drinking and Irish dancing. Watching The Quiet Man with the wife and kids. Perfect day.
