Paddy, what have you done?

Tomorrow is Paddy day, the booziest day in Ireland, when people get deadly drunk in the streets, in pubs, at home... everywhere! Name the place and there will be people drinking to death!

Some people say they drink to death on Paddy's day to forget St. Patrick was born in Britain. Others say it's because the Pota Phadraig or Patrick's Pot, as it was St. Patrick himself who said that "everyone should have a drop of the "hard stuff" on his feast day." Then, not to contradict St. Patrick and make him even more satisfied, people drink not a drop, but a whole lot!
