There’s No Such Thing as St. Patty’s DayPeople
As we approach March 17, consider this your friendly reminder: It’s St. Paddy’s Day, not St. Patty’s Day. Please edit your parade banners, bar flyers, leprechaun hats, and social media posts accordingly. The holiday celebrates the life of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland who was credited with bringing Christianity to the Irish. If you must use the diminutive, use Paddy with two Ds, not Ts.
