People - moving the "official" observation of a Saint's day is a normal thing; and it is to ALLOW celebration of the Saint's Day when other (moveable) feasts take precedence.
Since *MOST* people in the US celebrate Saint Pat's as a secular holiday - it doesn't make any difference - it is the RELIGIOUS observation that moved.
