    I know we are a global and international bunch of U-boot sub sim geeks...

    I was just wondering if St Patrick's Day is celebrated the same way around the world...or is it in nations where the Irish settled?

    So, for us in the USA, it's a Party (but not a federal holiday)

    Okay...that's a NO for the Federal Republic of Germany...it's a pity since their are SO MANY Irish pubs in western Germany. Lots of Irish workers too...and women! at least when I was there.

    We do celebrate it - in pubs ofcourse.
    Probably because Celts used to roam this place amongst all the others.

    I'm going out to celebrate in an English pub tonight, all the Pubs celebrate it in England. Guess it's just an excuse to have a party.

    I am not Irish, but i am Irish Descent. Both my Grandparents come from Ireland.

    Ahhh yes the celts. Their area of influence also included what is known as bavaria today.


    At least until the germanian tribes expanded south and east. Then the celts had to ......leave

    I can just imagine the scene, in a Sgt. Schultz voice: Hack, stab, slash... raus!
