I am seeing lots of green lately and I don't mean money! Since St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner, everyone is gearing up with their green shirts, decorations, recipes and more. We are all a little Irish when it comes to this fun day!
I can remember when this was my favorite day of the entire year. My friends and I used to go to the SouthSide Irish Parade here in Chicago. We would all meet up super early in the morning and park near whoever lived the closest to the parade. From there it would be a nonstop party from 8am until as long as you could last. It was madness and I cannot imagine being able to do that now! What fun memories, though.
One of the best parts was seeing the sea of green. Hundreds of people would be there wearing funny St Patricks Day shirts, Irish swag, green clothes… even costumes sometimes. People of all nationalities would participate. It definitely didn't matter if you were Irish or not! You could be honorary Irish for the day.
I wish I would have known about Cafe Press back then. They have everything you could imagine for St. Patrick's Day fun. From Irish shirts, to buttons, to flasks, to baby onesies you can find it all. Great for hitting up a parade, or just hanging out for the day. It's a blast to “go green” and spread some St. Patrick's Day cheer.
Although my parade days are much more tame now, it's still a day to look forward to. Since I am about .08% Irish, I feel obligated to have a least one green beer! 😉
What are your plans for St. Patrick's Day?
