So today is officially St. Patrick’s Day, or the Western world’s favorite excuse to get a bit toxic (along with New Year’s Eve, Thanksgiving, Graduation Day, President’s Day, Super Bowl Sunday, etc. etc.).
What a great time for social media engagement, right?! Last week Dublin Airport—which is somehow not among the top Facebook pages in Ireland—took the opportunity to remind everyone that Mac, Dennis and Charlie got it right: the correct nickname for St. Patrick is St. Paddy, NOT St. Patty.
This is not a new debate, BTW.
