There are conflicting dates for the St. Patrick’s Day incident of 2008.

This is the episode when Ted first encounters the yellow umbrella.

On season three, episode 12, “No Tomorrow,” the central friend group decides to split up to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

Lily, Marshall, Robin, and Ted gather for a board-game night at Lily and Marshall’s new apartment, but Barney goes all out for a night on the town in a green suit. 

Barney eventually persuades Ted to join him at the party after he secures him a date, and the night ends up taking some wild turns.

Later in the episode, we find out that Ted’s future wife, Tracy, was also at the same party.

When Ted returns to the club the next morning to look for his phone, he ends up taking an abandoned yellow umbrella — a recurring prop that connects Ted and Tracy together before they officially meet — to shelter himself from a sudden storm.

But when Tracy recalls the night years later, the date doesn’t coincide. In her version, it happened in April 2008, but on season three it went down on March 17th, 2008. 

Co-showrunner Carter Bays responded to fan questions about the inconsistency in 2014.

He tweeted, “Pretty sure that in 2008 St. Patty’s Day was in April. Yeah I’m right about this. Don’t look it up. I’m right. (CASUALLY BACKS OUT THE DOOR).”
