You Will Need
- Green clothes
- 1 gal. lemon-lime soda
- 2 pts. lime sherbet
- 2 c. crushed ice
- Desire to learn about Irish culture
- Button (optional)
Don't get pinched for wearing something other than green. Wear your green gear with pride.
Make a non-alcoholic punch
Make a non-alcoholic green punch by combining the lemon-lime soda, the lime sherbet, and the crushed ice. If people ask what you're drinking, call it "leprechaun's luck" or another name that refers to Irish culture.
Eat an Irish meal
Sit down at a local Irish pub to eat an Irish meal. Some traditional Irish dishes include corned beef and cabbage and boxty, a potato dish.
Attend a parade
Attend a parade in your area. Many cities in the United States throw a parade to commemorate the holiday.
Learn some Gaelic
Learn some Gaelic. Start simple with "Hello." In Gaelic "Hello" is "Dia Dhuit."
Be a designated driver
Help out your friends who might not be celebrating so soberly and be a designated driver. By staying sober on March 17, you'll wake up the next morning with fun memories of St. Patrick's Day instead of a hangover.
