I’ve never really celebrated St. Patrick’s Day, but I know others that celebrate it as a major holiday.
I was surprised at how much corned beef and recent restaurant special ads I’ve been seeing and wondered how much of the hive celebrates the day. 🙂

Normally I “celebrate it,” by celebrating I mean I drink beer at bars lol I do have quite a bit of Irish in me.. but my family doesn’t really do anything to celebrate. Normally I just go out with friends. This year my Fiance has to work all day, my 2 best girlfriends are also working and I work the next day.. so I’m just going to take it easy this year. PLUS my bachelorette party is the following weekend, so I’m going to let my liver rest up for that!

Our friends usually have a BBQ every year that we will go to but now that we have a 2 month old, I don’t think we will go. This year I will probably just make corned beef and cabbage.

Yes!! Corned Beef! Irish Soda Bread! Beer! Whiskey!
I did a parade weekend last weekend. Friday I’m going to a Museum party followed by a house party (both St. Paddy’s themed). I’m following it up with making corned beef and soda bread on Saturday. Sunday I’m running a 5K followed by a block party with a corned beef dinner at an Irish bar downtown.
I LOVE ST. PATRICKS!!!
(also just an FYI for everyone, I was told by an Irish woman last year that calling it “St. Patty’s” makes Irish people roll their eyes. Patty is a female name. Patrick is shortened to Paddy)

My work is celebrating right now! Green beer, irish tunes and a monumental game of flip cup!
I’m sitting here (drinking beer) waiting for an important email to come through before I join the fun!

@oracle: Add another category for “I celebrate it as a drinking/partying holiday.” I wear green, drink my green beer, and eat Irish pub food.

We me be a part of the St. Patty’s Day Parade in Washington DC. Friends of my parents have a float in the parade. It all depends on the weather and if I want to get up and ride the metro in to the city.

I never really have other than wearing green so I don’t get a pinch.
This year our friend has invited us to go out, he’s irish and apparently celebrates pretty hard.
I’m a little apprehensive because I have a full day conference before the celebration begins :/

Fiance and I are both part Irish and he LOVES corned beef, so he usually cooks a big corned beef and cabbage meal.

I’m not Irish and I don’t drink. Even when I did drink I never celebrated (we never really needed a reason to get drunk. “Tuesday” was a good enough reason).
The most we do is watch Boondock Saints.

Honestly I hate how crowded bars get on St. Paddy’s Day, but since my SO is hard-core Irish-American (I’m Polish), we go to bars to celebrate. I would do my girlfriend duty of making sure he doesn’t pass out drunk and get us both home safe…
This year, it’s going to be low key. My friend is coming to visit so the two of us and the SO will go down the street and check out our local bar’s festivities. I am just looking forward to doing my green eye-makeup. I’ve been following beauty blogger Carli Bybel’s videos, and I’m going to try the “pop of green” look she did recently. Yeah, that’s the extent of my SPD “partying…”
