"Today, Americans love the Irish and celebrate St Patrick’s Day enthusiastically. (And by celebrate I mean they get very drunk in the middle of the day – a practice Americans call “daydrinking” and Brits call “an ordinary weekend”.) "  - Arwa Mahdawi, of The Guardian

The observation made me chuckle. More so that there would actually be a term for it on the other side of the Atlantic than the implied differences in culture.
