    Cool beans! I'm sooo in the mood for an all night green beer drinking fest. :D

    The parades, the crowds at Westport, the green beer, dye in the city fountains, those silly shamrock hats.....I love this holiday. :D

    If we began to celebrate America's crapness, we'd never go back to work, ever.

    St Patricks Day: A chance for Americans to ignore the fact that most of them have as much in common with Ireland as one of those naff Irish theme pubs.

    I think it's funny that our celebration of St. Patricks Day always seems to upset the English so. :D

    When everybody in America wears green and McDonald's spew out that luminous green residue known as "Shamrock Shakes"...

    We don't really understand why you celebrate it...espically when every american claim's to be a 'bit irish' it's not a very big island we think you lot are lying..

    I just don't celebrate it cos it's an Irish holiday. It's got nothing to do with being English. I wouldn't celebrate it if I was American either.

    Or America for that matter.

    I think we should just set the Irish forum to St Patrick's Day colours and ignore the rest of the JC. [face_devil]

    Arun, I actually saw a program about that once. The amount of Americans who claim to have Irish in them is a mathematical impossibility. [face_laugh]

    well, something liek that anyways...

    Most of our "holidays" are based on old pagan sabbats and festivals... Samhain (Halloween) being my favourite.

    I try and wear something tartan on St Andrews Day but I don't celebrate St Patricks day because I'm not Irish.

    Does America have a patron saint...or do they just jump on everyone else's bandwagon?

    Thats not a dig, BTW, I really wanna know.


    And I despise "Patty". Thats a womans name. We use Paddy over here.
