Is it rude to say St Paddy’s Day?

Some people also find "St. Paddy's Day" inappropriate because, since the 18th century, Paddy has been used in English as a disparaging name for an Irishman or, in informal British English, as "a fit of temper." For those who wish to avoid Paddy because of its offensive use, that's understandable.
