    I shall get drunk tommorow afternoon or night. Havent decided yet.

    What I dont understnad is why do English pubs promote St Patricks day so much, have lots of Irish flags etc everywhere, the non St Georges day...nothing! You rarely see a st goerges cross on that day, of course us English are just being PC as always. Grrr.

    I think that the main reason for St.Patrick's Day importance is the incredible spread of Irish people around the world. Considering that we had a population of 9 million around the early 1900's, and todays figure is about half of that - this means loads of Irish descendants all across the world.

    In other words - Pubs make a bit of fast extra cash.

    Wouldn't surprise me.

    I have so many Irish/American relatives, that I wouldn't recognise most of them.

    We Brits will have any excuse to get drunk, which is what St Patrick's seems to be about. Sad. As for not pushing St George's, we're too scared to ofend the minorities, despite many of the minorities (myself included) identifying with England...

    St. George wasn't "very" English either.
