CMXVI-St Patrick's Day, March 17th, MMVIII

Is on a Monday. That Monday is Monday Of Holy Week & May NOT, in a # of Dioceses, be liturgically celebrated:

It would be the day after Palm Sunday. Marching up 5th Avenue, would be AWKWARD to say the least, as Holy Thursday & Good Friday, are a few days away;

The Irish Bishops are asking The Vatican for permission to celebrate the Feast on Saturday, March 15th. @ least it would be celebrated before the Start of Holy Week;

This would upstage the NY Organizers of The St Patrick's Day Parade a bit;

There must be a lot of Irish influence in NY for them to have a parade for St Patrick's Day. Oh, wait a minute! Don't New Yorkers parade for everything? ;} That's a place I would love to visit.

Considering that March 17th, '08 is Monday of Holy Week, I'm wondering just how hard-headed the Parade Committee will be
