    Is it OK to leave a St Patrick's Day celebration early if you have a train to catch? Or is that bad form and one should stay to the very end to clap the fiddlers and heedrum hodrum musicians off stage?

      Looks like I'm alone in enjoying the festively themed lime jelly shots later tonight.
      We've got a big Paddies party going on tonight, not one Irish person here though.

      I learned to celebrate St Patrick's Day when I was at a Catholic primary school in Newport (St Joseph's), being taught by Irish nuns.

      March was a brilliant month, since we were given the day off for religious holidays.

      1 March ... St David's Day
      17 March ... St Patrick's Day
      19 March ... St Joseph's Day.

      Chuck in Ash Wednesday and it's hard to see how we learned anything.

      What if there were no hypothetical questions?

      No problem at all with it, people just being happy and having a good time.
      My grandpappy was from Clonmany in Donegal, but even if he wasn't I'd still raise a glass.

      Because it's a bit of fun and an excuse to enjoy yourself, have a drink or 3 with some mates (or not) and have a laugh.

      Oh, we're miserable frigging English and we don't do fun.

      Arh feck it, my old man was Irish so I don't give a rats. Drink, laugh, Irish Stew and fun tonight it was....

      Well I suppose that's worth celebrating.

      This thread ticked all the annual bingo boxes on the very first page.

      What's up next in the calendar, some kind of Why aren't we allowed to celebrate St George's day one?
