Around this time of year the outrage begins to build on Twitter & Facebook. Memes, images and general rants about how our American chums 'get it wrong' by calling the seventeenth of March 'St. Patty's Day', rather than St Patrick's Day, or the 'proper' shortening of 'St. Paddy's Day'.
I used to get a little irritated by it too, until I realised I was thinking about it all wrong. Ireland is a country that is so loved in the world's hearts that they want to throw a yearly, huge party to celebrate it's existence. They don't do this for Iceland, or even France. So we should be flattered, and don't be so grumpy if they get it a little wrong. It's like being upset too many people want to come to your birthday party. Someone on Twitter said to me how would I react if someone came to my birthday, but then called me the wrong name all night? Simple. As long as they were buying me drinks, they could call me whatever they liked!
So try to let go of your irritation at the yanks with their 'Patty's-ing' and join in the fun like these Irish themed cats. The Internet truly does have everything.
