    Surely St P's Day only has any relevance if you're Irish?;):wacko:
     
  6. Its relevant also if your not Irish but living there, it meant you get another holiday;)
     
  7. Or a pub owner...went past several around here advertising "St Patrick's Day weekend" ;)

    Slowly losing touch with my roots :blush: but it was a BIG THING when we were kids . Both the parents came over from Ireland in 1956 (they met and married here) and we used to wear a big cardboard harp to school on St Paddy's day, and the rellies used to send over a squidgy envelope full of shamrock to pin on our school jumper, under that harp.... (late 60s, early 70s) :blush:

    it gives us english an excuse to get hammered! well another one! I think we celebrate st patricks day more than st georges because it soo associated with alcohol, and celebrating St Georges Day = racism now
