HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!!

Hey there all you Lucky Charms!

Bouncing by just for the fun of it to give you a lil change of subject for the day. Today in the U.S.A. is March 17th aka St. Patrick’s Day. Where many put on some kind of Green Colored Clothing, participate in some kind of Green Ale Drinking, and make a feast of food they may not normally eat. (At least that’s how a lot of my friends do it. Lol.)

Now, I know that those of you closer to the actual Holiday origination have issue with those of us on the “other side of the pond” calling it St. Pat’s or St. Patty’s. So here is a quick rundown as to why. The name Patrick shortened is Pat for us. Patricia shortened is Patty, but I have also seen Patty used for Patrick as well. This being instilled in our brains since childhood has made it so many look at the name and use the standard abbreviation of what WE are used to. Just think of many different spellings of a word depending on culture and pronunciation. Color/Colour, Grey/Gray, Herb/Herb (I know some of you pronounce the H while others do not). Just keep in mind it is not meant in harm or as an insult, just a reflection of just how different and unique each of us are. It is what makes each of usΒ the amazing people we are, because we are different. So don’t take things TOO seriously when someone is just speaking as they were taught. We do not mean to offend at all. In then end, it is much funner to just go grab a pint together… right? πŸ˜‰

  8. St Patrick’s day is one where St patrick drove the snakes (pagans) out of Ireland. It’s a celebration of persecution. 😦 But I’m glad my friends and I have a great humor about it. One friend hangs a wreath decorated with plastic snakes! I loved it so much I’m going to make one of my own!

  9. As a Finnish-American, I got to celebrate St.Urho’s Day yesterday. http://sturhosday.com/history/ As I am also part Irish, I will have corned beef and cabbage later today. In my neck of the woods, (Midwest US) where my grandparents couldn’t get jobs because “Irish need not apply”, paddy is a racial slur. We say St. Patrick’s day.

  14. Before I left for work, I played some of my favorite Pogues songs while I started some braised corned beef brisket with stout in the slow cooker. When I get home from work, I’m going to raise a glass to those that made the journey that brought me here.

  15. As much as I would rather be enjoying some fish and chips and maybe a mug of green ale with some friends later on today, instead I will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day by wearing a green shirt to work later on this evening. :/ I will share a story with you though…
    Last weekend the town I recently moved to, had its annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. It’s sorta a huge deal in my town. I was scheduled to work that day, but I did get to see some of the town festivities during my lunch break. After the parade was over, I noticed near some local bars, there were tents set up, a food truck, and a band playing, and lots of loud, intoxicated people milling about. I was actually glad I was working. After I picked up my lunch, as I was crossing the railroad tracks to go back to my job, I looked down, and saw a ten dollar bill laying in a puddle of water. I looked around. No one in front of me. No one to either side of me. I looked back at the drunken crowd partying a few hundred feet behind me. With a sober mind I decided it was better to keep the $10 rather than go confront the drunkards. My bad! Free lunch that day. Lol.

  18. The confusion all comes from the accent. I live in Canada and, like the Americans, do not pronounce my “tty’s”. They come out “ddy”. So to us Paddy and Patty are pronounced pretty much exactly the same. The only time an Irishman would know the difference of which one we’re saying is by watching us actually write it down. The Irish and the British, on the other hand pronounce their “tty’s” so they think if we spell it like Patty we are saying it like they would. But we’re actually still saying “Paddy”. No matter how we spell it.

  19. I don’t really celebrate St Patricks day (that’s what I was brought up to call it here in the UK) anymore as I married my wonderful wife 3 years ago on this day so now I either cook a romantic meal or we go out for a meal and a quiet drink to celebrate that instead πŸ™‚

    The one thing I’ve always wondered is why we seem to celebrate St Patrick’s day here in the UK with such enthusiasm but the other Saints (David, George and Andrew) just seem to just pass by.

      Because Guinness, green, leprechauns & shamrocks are much more exciting than say “sheep & leeks” haha… I think Scotland already has burns night for their bagpipes & haggis and England… well everything is super PC so y’know πŸ˜› would be cool to have a Dragon-themed day though!!

  20. The shortened form of Patrick is Paddy, not Patty(although strange that Pat is also an accepted form). Americans tend to say it like Patty but you should at least think Paddy when you say it. You go over to Ireland and call a guy Patty and you’re going to have a bad time.

    St. Paddy’s Day not St. Patty’s Day.

  23. language evolves this is true. I am from the UK we usually say Paddy when refering to our Irish neighbours yes we say Pat too but not Patty though. Welsh they all get called Taffy or Taff Scottish Jock my grandad is Scottish in fact. Think more recent London name when they talk about us is Steve or Dave but dunno! Celebrated on Saturday night already Irish band playing live at our local royal British Legion social club (armed forces veterans charity for those not familiar). Do you guys celebrate St David’s Day which was not long ago or St George’s day 23rd April too?

  24. Closer to the Emerald Isle, we in the UK tend to shorten Patrick to “Paddy”. Just an FYI there. πŸ˜‰
