Although St. Patrick’s Day was originally a day that marked the death of an Irish saint, it is now a day dedicated to celebrating Irish culture in various countries across the globe.
If you also celebrate this day and are looking for festive ways to make it even more enjoyable and fun, then worry no more! Here are some of the coolest and zestiest ways to celebrate this holiday:
Dressing up green
Green is the color most associated with this holiday. So, what better way is there to celebrate this holiday than simply going all green? You can go ahead and buy a St. Patrick’s Day outfit for yourself or simply go ahead and design one on your own.
You can also mix and match green clothes that you already own and design a unique outfit without spending money. If you are not the type to go all green, you can choose to wear green accessories or nails to give off that St. Patrick’s Day vibe!
Bake some soda bread
This might sound odd to those not very familiar with St. Patrick’s Day but baking soda bread for this holiday is quite a tradition. This bread is baked using simple ingredients like flour, baking soda, buttermilk, and salt. This bread was made by the Irish long ago when there were no ovens, and people wanted bread that was ready in a short time.
To get even more festive, you can add a bit of green food color or make a green dip to go with the bread. This idea will surely awe your guests if you are throwing a St. Patrick’s Day party!
Take part in a parade
If you love to get social and attend events, make sure you join a parade happening near you. There are numerous parades held in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, and if you research online beforehand, you can make it to one.
Make sure you remember the venue and time. You can expect to enjoy music and dance in a parade and even watch a good show put on by the participants of the parade.
Make greeting cards
Today, greeting cards have almost become obsolete. However, you can be the first one to revive this tradition because who doesn’t love a personal card sent to them by a loved one?
Simply gather some green paper and a festive card with some green accessories and get all crafty! You can also get your kids to participate and help them make some for a few of their friends.
Hunt for four-leaf clovers
Four-leaf clovers are said to bring luck and are also very rare to find. If you have a garden or backyard, this can be a very fun activity to do with your kids or guests at a party.
Everyone simply goes looking for a four-leaf clover, and the first person to find one wins. You can also decide upon a prize beforehand. You can also challenge each other to look for more than one four-leaf clover! Even if you do not get first place, you can still end up with a lot of luck if you find one!
The ideas mentioned above are not the only things you can do to jazz up St. Patrick’s Day, but they are certainly some of the best things you can do to make any party interactive or fun.
In fact, these activities are fun even if you choose to spend this holiday with just your partner and kids! So make sure you get festive this St. Patrick’s Day!
