Peterson St. Patrick's Day Pipes.

Peterson St. Patrick's Day Pipes.

Each year Peterson launches a range of pipes to celebrate Ireland’s national holiday when everyone in the world wishes to be Irish. Some years they have gone with a very Irish colour – a shade of green.
Saint Patrick’s Day (Irish Lá le Pádraig) colloquially St. Paddy’s day of Paddy’s day, is an annual feast day which celebrates Saint Patrick (circa 385-461), the patron Saint of Ireland. It takes place on 17 March, the date on which Patrick is held to have died.
The day is the national holiday of the Irish people. It is a bank holiday in Northern Ireland, and a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Montserrat, and the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. In the rest of Canada and the United Kingdom, Australia, the United States and New Zealand, it is widely celebrated but is not an official holiday.
I would like to ask Peterson management a question:- why the annual St Patrick's Day pipes are never available until a couple of weeks before the event each year, without fail?

Surely their world wide production could be managed to coincide with the correct time and date each year for sufficient numbers to be available to Pete Nuts for the great day.
Here is a photo of a nice example from my own collection, a St Patricks Day 408.
