5. STOP!!! It's 'St. Paddy's Day', not 'St. Patty'
Patty is a girl's name in Ireland. You call an Irish guy Patty, he'd probably punch you in the nose. Every year I have to explain this to my American friends. This would be like me calling a certain ex-President 'Abby Lincoln'. It's *so* annoying for Irish people!
