State Patty’s Day “Officially” Announced

Don’t worry, just as Walmart and Target solicit their Christmas selection the day after Halloween, early excitement has come for Penn State’s most official holiday. No, not you Statetoberfest, but State Patty’s Day.

Some call it the best thing that ever happened to drinking, others fail to remember it completely (job well done), and then others see it as a disrespectful and shameful partying holiday that disgraces the good name of State College.

The first of many “official” State Patty’s Day event pages has surfaced, setting the date for the holiday as February 26. The Facebook event has more than 6,000 people attending and those numbers will only rise as the winter months go on. It seems as if State Patty’s will continue regardless of anyone’s approval.

Is this just a way-too-soon hype about a mediocre drinking holiday, or does State Patty’s symbolize something greater to the student population?

You decide, but remember to wear green!
