StPatricksOnABudget

Now that Valentine’s Day is over, feel free to take down the red and pink hearts and put in the green shamrocks, rainbows, and the pots of gold. Though keep in mind that the Irish take the leprechauns as offensive Irish stereotypes. Nonetheless, while some may bask in the parades and pub crawls on March 17, others might find their own way to party. This especially goes in families with kids where getting sloshed in honor of one’s Irish heritage isn’t really an option. Then again, many people around the world celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day and they don’t have to be Irish. Or even Christian since Saint Patrick is a patron saint of Ireland. Anyway, for your reading pleasure, I present to you another assortment of St. Paddy’s Day goodies. Expect a lot of green food here, not limited to green eggs and ham. Because that’s Dr. Seuss.
