Is your name Pink, Patsy, Tricia, Paddy? If it’s Patrick or any of its world-wide and gender variations you’ll gain entry to the Guinness Storehouse for free on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th. There’s nothing new there – they extend this handshake to Patricks every year.
What is different this year is that they are aiming to set a new record for the Guinness Book of World Records. No, it’s not the greatest number of Patricks in one place, though perhaps it should be, it’s the World’s Friendliest Day record. It makes sense. Ireland has always had a reputation for being friendly, they’re known for their welcome to tourists, the craic in their pubs.
