St. Patrick’s Day is the 17th, this coming Sunday. Are you going to celebrate? A lot of people hit the town to enjoy a drink or two, but you don’t have to go out for St. Patrick’s. In fact, if you don’t like crowds, you might want to stay home and celebrate in your own way.
How? Well, you can wear green, for a start. That’s probably the most well-known tradition associated with St. Patrick’s Day. You can also decorate with green decorations, shamrocks, and other items like leprechauns and pots of gold.
Eating and drinking green items is another tradition. Many bars tint their beer green for the day, which you can do with some food coloring. You can also mix it in with scrambled eggs to create a dish of green eggs and ham. If you want to be very traditional, you can prepare cabbage and corned beef.
Need an activity? There are a number of different sports events held on St. Patrick’s Day. Kick back and watch one if you love sports. If not, you can watch just about anything. Maybe the horror movie Leprechaun?
