I have both Catholic Irish and Ulster heritage, so I could go either. I prefer the Catholics, though.

Yes, that would be on March 30. Aren't we Irish Orthodox lucky? We can celebrate on two days instead of just one.  Wink

If St Patrick is the patron of a church, the priest has the prerogative to wear green if he wishes, even if the feast day is in Great Lent.

That is why I posted the smilie. No, I do not celebrate it on both days.
I am truly Irish with alcoholism in my family history, so I avoid alcohol.
According to the news media, this St. Pat's day saw the arrest of more DUIs than did New Year's Day.

"St. Patrick's Day" itself is a modern relatively new phenomenon.

My grandfather thought it was all nonsense. The rule he had was not to wear orange. But that applied to nearly every other day of the year as well.

One of my bandmates is an IRA supporting Irish-American.  Kind of vocal about it.

So I always make it a point to wear orange in some way, shape, or form when around him the week before and after St. Patrick's Day.  We played on Saturday the 16th and I wore an orange pocket square in my jacket.

He was, as usual, not amused.

He's lucky I didn't wear the orange gingham shirt!

This Sunday, our rector (who is Irish and a convert from Roman Catholicism) wore green vestments. The rest of the clergy, however, wore gold (the standard color of "ordinary" time).

He actually wears a green cassock most of the year, and has a gold cross. He looks like a leprechaun. He wears a black one for Lent, though, so he changed into that one during Forgiveness Vespers.

Green is also used for Palm Sunday, and for feasts of prophets and fools-for-Christ.

I cover both bases by wearing an orange jacket and a green ball cap. Grin In Oregon, though, since my cap is a University of Oregon cap, I get a lot of people who don't know whether I'm an Oregon State Beaver fan because of the orange and black coat or an Oregon Duck fan because of the UO cap. I just tell them I'm a Duck fan who wears a bright orange jacket because I like to be seen at night when I'm walking alongside the street.

It's also worn for Lazarus Saturday and monastics.

When worn at Pentecost, it is often worn throughout Holy Spirit Week, and then also from the beginning of the Apostle's Fast until Ss. Peter and Paul.

Though, I'd heard some places wear orange for Ss. Peter and Paul. I find that strange...

I have never seen an orange cassock or riassa.

Retired Bishop Tikhon Fitzgerald of the OCA would often wear a green cassock when he visited parishes.
He is Irish, but his descendants were of the Protestant kind. Go figure.  laugh

Sad, but understandable. I don't imagine St. Patrick had much to do with the evangelization of Poland. Tongue

He's really only started to be a big commemoration in the West (just a few decades, I'd guess) as more and more of us pasty white Irish folk have found our way into Orthodoxy. It's my understanding that you really won't hear a thing about him in traditional Orthodox lands.
