My wife and I are having a "disagreement"about how it should be abbreviated.

I say that it's "St. Patty's Day", she says "St. Paddy's".

My reasoning is that there is no D in Patrick, so it wouldn't abbreviate to "Paddy". But then I've seen a bunch of websites, etc. that show it as "St. Paddy's Day".

What say you?

Paddy's. I'm Irish. Trust me.

See various threads on www.boards.ie

All Irish posters, all 'Paddy'

I think Patrick is spelled somthing likr Padrig or somthing similar in the more celtic spelling. Patrick is more latin based if I am guessing right.

Spell accordingly.

I figured my spelling was off a bit but in the correct direction.
