Green beer?
Can't wait.
Green striped socks?
Got 'em.
Shamrock headband?

It's St. Patty's Day...not St. Paddy's Day! Thank You.

I am told: Abbreviating St. Patrick as “St. Patty” is considered demeaning to the Irish, since Patty is the diminutive form of “Patricia.” The correct term is St. Paddy’s Day, as “Paddy” is the short form of Patrick.

There is also a corn beef dinner at Nazareth Moravian Church. $10 for adults and $5 for wee ones under 10.

Thanks for the tip, Linda! I added the dinner at Nazareth Moravian Church to the St. Patrick's Day poll.

Mallory, you are celebrating being Irish, for on St. Paddy's Day everyone is Irish! Although, I am Irish all year lone!! =P
Eric Harding March 12, 2012 at 04:08 PM
Mallory is correct on this subject. Patty is short for Patricia where Paddy is short for Patrick. I am working on a reference and will post one when I have one for you.
Mallory Vough (Editor) March 12, 2012 at 04:09 PM
I know. That's what everyone says: St. Patrick's Day is the day everyone is Irish. I just don't feel it! Although, I will be joining my boyfriend's very German family in eating corned beef and cabbage on Sunday. How does that sound?
Eric Harding March 12, 2012 at 04:11 PM
Sounds delicious! My wife had to make the transition into an Irish family. She is not used to the corned beef and cabbage yet... she'll get used to it though!

Dear Welsh Mallory, St. Patrick was originally from Wales, so please feel free to celebrate him. His birth name was Maewyn. Here's a lovely history: http://www.historic-uk.com/HistoryUK/HistoryofWales/St-Patrick-The-most-celebrated-Welshman-in-America/ Lechyd da i chwi yn awr ac yn oesoedd, Cynthia (Welsh and Proud!)

I never got used to corned beef and cabbage but I can tolerate bagpipes. In tight quarters too. ( my uncle was one of those guys with the staff at the front and we all got an encore from the band in the one room clubhouse. Every year for my entire childhood). I usually reserve celebrating with my family at the Rockland County parade in New York though. And I drag my Bangor-born husband along.
