Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
To experience th real St. Patrick's Day you have to be in the emerald isle. Your statement is akin to saying 'the real Thanksgiving Ceremony only exists in Timbuktu'. (probably an insult to the US citizens who live there and have an awesome party on the day!)
The US is NOT the only country in the world. People do exist outside the stars and stripes.
No offence but we are here and reading!
However, come easter -- those ads will be turned off. Little duckies and chickies and easter eggs would be a little discordent and probably a lot annoying just like the Christmas ads were.
Well, I hope david_uk was joking. You would have to be pretty stupid not to realize that there is a St Patrick's day in the US because there are a zillion Irish immigrants there.
Yes, I am aware that the reason Paddy's day is big in the US is because there is a large number of people with Irish ancestry there. And no, I wasn't joking. The impression we get this side of the pond is that it's a US holiday invented by the US, for the US. I just wanted to remind those who seem to forget that it's an Irish day.

Because the US celebrates a holiday doesn't mean that they invented it or claim to have invented it.
Where does that side of the pond get those wide sweeping generalizations of the US from? I hope it's not the mainstream media over there.
