St. Paddy’s Day

Believe it or not, there is a difference and the difference is big in Ireland. The Irish don’t like it when people call it St. Patty’s Day. Patty is a shortened version of the name Patricia, not Patrick.
But Paddy is a shortened version of the name Padraig which is another way of saying Patrick in Ireland. Soften those t’s and stick with Paddy’s Day.
