Caithness - I hope that the cold didn't keep many away from your parade this year! One day, I'd like to come up there and celebrate in NYC. Our parade in Kansas City is said to be the 3rd largest!

Come down some time and see.

Happy day after (oooh my head!)

I'm too late! Buh-WAH!!!!

I wanted to ask a question too... what are St. Patrick's Day celebrations like in Ireland, or the UK in general? I'm wondering if its like celebrations here, green beer and parades and such; or is it more of a religious day...

In the areas of Ireland that I have visited, - go to Mass and not much more!

In the UK - well, nothing much. Irish-themed pubs in Scotland seem to TRY to persuade people to participate - but as I never drink in them I can't say for sure what they do cool.gif biggrin.gif

I read that Ken Livingstone, the Mayor of London, started a St Patrick's Day parade in London.... but it's not very big. Believe he modelled it on Irish celebrations in the States!

A Tartan Day in Paris - now I'd like to be present for that day! I like the thought of a pipe band in Paris... much finer music than what I heard while I was there.

So it seems that most St. Patrick Day celebrations are not as 'gaudy' as the ones stateside... interesting. Thanks to everyone for sharing with me. What makes me feel respectful towards St. Patrick was visiting Ireland and learning about he was so influential in bringing the Christian faith there... I appreciate him, as a Christian myself. I am not Catholic, but I've read how Christianity was spread in Ireland by people such as Patrick and Brigid and I do like their dedication. I have a beautiful St. Brigid's cross given to me by a dear friend, that I love wearing.

Do you know that there was a commercial advertising Guinness showing a Santa Claus-ish green & white clad St. Patrick? It was appalling! To try to create a similiarity between Santa and Patrick is just not right...

Well, I have a friend from Northern Ireland and I asked her what the traditional day is like and she said they have parades and have Irish stew. However, she said that we have much more fun in America over this day than they do. She also told me that to refer to St. Patrick's Day as St. Paddy's or St. Patty's is both rude and insulting to them in Ireland.

Just thought I would share.

Did she think it was okay then, the way celebrations tend to be here? I think I much prefer a parade and stew than green-tinted fountains... yes.gif

I've heard 'Paddy' used as a rather derogatory nickname for an Irishman, I'm not surprised that she also says its rude and insulting.

Actually S Blues, my Irish friend is pretty laid back about what we do here in America as she has been her many times and likes it here and the things we do. She didn't seem insulted at all when I sent a copy of that article. However, she is insulted by our use of referring St Patrick's Day as St. Paddy or worse yet....St Patty which is a "girls name."
