you obviously didnt read the other thread. some old German bloke moved it so it didnt spoil his easter plans:

from that wikiwotsit site:

"The date of the feast is occasionally moved by church authorities when March 17 falls during Holy Week; this happened in 1940 when Saint Patrick's Day was observed on 3 April in order to avoid it coinciding with Palm Sunday, and is happening again in 2008, being observed on 15 March."

well...it's not today according to this...

wikipedia: The date of the feast is occasionally moved by church authorities when March 17 falls during Holy Week; this happened in 1940 when Saint Patrick's Day was observed on 3 April in order to avoid it coinciding with Palm Sunday, and happened again in 2008, when it was held on March 15.[2] March 17th will not fall during Holy Week again until 2160.[3]
