St Paddy's Day - No Such Thing As St Patty's!

Just find this amusing.

I am Irish, I am from Ireland. And while im delighted your all in the spirit of things, there is no such thing as St Patty's Day. And more and more I hear it every year as people confuse Patty and Paddy.

Patty is a womans name, Saint Patrick, big surpise an all, was a man!!! Not a woman!

Also, its an Irish holiday, so drinking Mac Callan, Glenmorangie etc, is.....unhelpful, they are Scottish drinks. It still amazes me how I offer people a whiskey and they say 'oh I only drink scotch and not whiskey'. Well, lightbulb moment, scotch is whiskey! Its just marketed more in Scotland to the US market than Irish whiskey.

Also, we dont eat bacon and cabbage on st paddys day. Its usually a beef roast, or lamb, with roast patatoes and turnip or something to that effect.

Anyways..... just having a cringe moment, had to clarify!

Happy La Le Phadraig!

    wolfetone Speaking in general the American retailers can make a holiday out of anything they can make money off of especially if it involves alcohol. Mexicans generally don't celebrate Cinco de Mayo but it's huge here in SoCal all because of Jose Cuervo. Anything to make a buck.

    Tullamore Dew, nectar of the Gods.... or so I've always thought. 

    Happy St Paddy's Day to all who are or wish to be from Eire...

    This guy knows what's up. I'm of Scotch-Irish descent, so I dig what you're laying down.
  • @wolfetone‌ I agree with you 100% I am not from Ireland but my family is of Irish descent and it's funny how many of the people that marry into the family all of a sudden think they are Irish haba. I blame advertising and mainstream media for wanting to "Americanize" everything. At least it is all in good spirits and fun. Erin Go Bragh!

    Don't get me wrong! It's a great day to celebrate, Irish, Irish decent, or otherwise!

    There's a great relationship between the US and Ireland!
    Glad to be a part of both great countries!
