Do you think Niantic would make an event for St. Patty’s Day with bonuses to lucky trades and lucky friends? It would be nice to buff the Lucky Friend chance and/or lucky trades. Maybe a reduced Stardust cost for trading. Increased spawns of green Pokemon would be funny.
I think Valentine’s Day and Easter are pagan holiays turned Christian events that can be disguised as being what they now actually are. However, vernal equinox/grass pokemon themes will likely continue each middle of March instead of anything directly attributed to the snake/pot of gold chaser.
The game always has large events for four Western festivals (Christmas, Easter, Halloween and Valentine’s). In contrast, there was a small event for Chinese New Year, while other non-Western festivals have been completely ignored.
I’d welcome events from any calendar, religious or otherwise because they inevitably come with bonuses.
As an aside I would, though, not refer to St Patrick’s day as “St Pattys” (Paddy being a historically disparaging way of referring to Irish people and Patty being short for female names like Patricia) particularly when in Ireland as a punch in the face often offends.
I’m not Irish by the way.
