It’s Paddy not Patty; Let me Explain!

Lol so if your friends with me on Facebook or spoken to me today I have a real bee in my bonnet about this – as do 2 of my Irish friends i have spoken to today -They find it quite insulting!  I just don’t approve of changing the name of another countries hoildays – Like its Merry Christmas not Happy Hoilday’s! Iam on a mission to sort this shit out! lmao
Paddy is short for Patrick in Irish, Patty is Short Patrica! I have never heard of a St Patrica 😛

If you like to use the nickname for Patrick, the 5th century British missionary who bought Christianity to Ireland and (supposedly) booted out the snakes then it’s Paddy you need, a name itself that originates from the Irish Pádraig.
As Marcus Campbell, the one-man crusade behind the Paddy not Patty website and the Twitter feed of the same name, says “There isn’t a sinner in Ireland that would refer to a Patrick as “Patty”. It’s as simple as that.”
This from this short article  and explains it more so please check it out ❤
