One of your closest friends is Irish. He/she tells you that St. Patrick's Day is an important cultural holiday for his/her family and is upset that it has been appropriated and commercialized by non-Irish people. Would this change how you celebrate?

Yes. Even though non-Christians treat Christmas the same way, I feel it's important to respect other people's cultures. I don't celebrate St. Paddys day like most people though anyway.

I am Irish. Grand mothers maiden name is O'Grady. Look at how it's celebrated in Ireland. Every bar is packed and parades all over the Country. The US is mild in comparison and everyone is Irish on St Patrick's day.

This guy sounds like a real piece of work. Everything is too commercialized these days. St. Patrick's day should be the least of his worries.

I'd have regular beer instead of green beer. But I don't celebrate it anyway.

No, because I don't celebrate it.

It would encourage me to take my whiney Irish friend out for some green beer.
