      St Patrick's day is little more than a Guinness marketing campaign. Thank god their sales are in massive decline and drinkers are moving to English craft stouts and porters.
      All of this. Although the majority of the craft stouts & porters I've got lined up for tonight happen to be Welsh, but hey, much the same principle. Don't mean to be a snob (yes I do) but Guinness is just so, unnecessary

      I suppose we have to celebrate St. Patrick's Day because we can't celebrate St. George's Day because everybody knows that would be racist.


      If we have to share someone else's day, would you rather it was the Scots or the Welsh?
      Patrick was a native Briton, George was a Syrian.

      St Patrick was English (sort of), what's not to celebrate?

      I have no Irish heritage and lost a relative to an IRA attack so don't give two shits about them.

      What winds me up is the wife's fourth generation American cousins drinking shots in Michigan called Semtex thinking it's cool and funny... Wankermotherfeckersifyouaskeme .

      For the Americans it has to do with the myths and stories that the Irish propagate. There is a charm that Americans like to celebrate and anything that the Americans like gets spread all over the world through their media.

      We don't exactly appreciate having our "charm" spread all over the world. The Irish embrace it.

      What a very stupid comment.

      George the name is from Greek origins, nothing English about it.

      Jesus isn't the patron saint to England...
