Whether you call it St. Patrick’s Day, St. Paddy’s Day or simply St. Paddy’s, there’s one thing we all know about March 17th: It’s the perfect excuse to have a blast! In fact, somewhere between green beer marathons and a slew of Lucky Charm treats, this Irish-loving celebration allows us to throw our boring #desklife out the window and add some leprechaun-approved fun into the mix. But, if you are ready to make this year’s festivities the best ones yet, these five activities guarantee you’ll have an epic day, from the moment you wake up until your late-night St. Paddy’s bar crawl comes to an end.
Even though boozing it up in the a.m. is not our cup of tea, St. Patrick’s Day gets a hall pass. Of course, the only drink worthy enough of breaking the rules is Irish coffee. This delicious blend of freshly brewed java, Irish whiskey, and whipped cream can win over even the pickiest of coffee lovers. So, for this special day, ditch the instant coffee and brew yourself and friends/family a cup of this festive beverage. Your St. Patrick’s day just got off on the right foot, don’t you think?
Go green or get pinched; that’s the #1 St. Patrick’s day rule. And while this tradition is seemingly harmless, no one enjoys being groped, grabbed or pinched by co-workers and friends just ’cause. So, to avoid the hassle, make sure you add something green-tinged to your St. Paddy’s outfit, be it a T-shirt, scarf or even a headband. Plus, all this color will put you in a festive mood even if you are not a fan of this tradition. PS: Donning head-to-toe green is optional (and all types of fun, IMO).
We’d never thought we’d say this, but St. Patrick’s Day may be your chance to sneak some of those green veggies you bought last week in your meals. Why do that? Besides nourishing your body with a variety of vitamins and minerals, these ingredients make sure your food looks the part, from desserts and smoothies to salads and dips. Not to mention that you spare stuffing your body with dubious, possibly harmful substances, a.k.a. green food coloring. Who knew that munching on St. Paddy’s could be fun AND nutritious?
March 17th is all about celebrating the Irish culture. Representing a large of the country’s heritage, music plays a big role in St’ Patrick’s festivities. So, if you want to get the most out of this day, make sure you turn up the volume and listen to some of Ireland’s best tunes. Or if you’re really feeling the St. Patrick’s Day spirit you could play some songs yourself.
If you didn’t go out with friends on St. Patrick’s day, did you actually do it right? Irish or not, partying on this day is a given. However, before you head out and drink your way to the best Guinness in town, make sure you plan your route efficiently and talk with the pub’s manager to avoid long lines and poor service incidents. So, gather your squad, pick your favorite pubs and get the beer drinking started. Don’t forget to pack your in-case-of-emergency flask!
