Ten on Tuesday

GreensLeaves resized for blog

In the spirit of this week’s holiday, today’s Ten on Tuesday topic is 10 Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

  1. Wear green. Duh.
  2. Drink Guinness. I’ve already done this but I’ll probably do it again.
  3. Visit an Irish pub.
  4. Eat corned beef and cabbage.
  5. Have some Irish soda bread with that corned beef and cabbage.
  6. And then make red flannel hash with the leftovers.
  7. Buy some green yarn. My friends at Kpixie are having a special St. Patrick’s Day giveaway and you really ought to go check it out.
  8. Sing Irish songs. The Guinness really helps with this.
  9. Go to the St. Patrick’s Day parade. We didn’t go this year because of the horrible weather and I really missed it.
  10. Pretend you’re Irish – even if you aren’t. I’m not, but honestly, everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.

How will you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?

  1. 🙂 I actually have some Irish heritage, but I don’t think I can top your list – I may have to sit this one out! I do love me some Guinness, though!

  2. I forgot to wear green once – only once, and it will never happen again. Imagine teaching elementary school and NOT wearing green?! Scary thought.

  3. I’m pretty meh about St. Patrick’s Day. Being Puerto Rican, and living in the “Emerald Isle of NY” for much of my life (East Durham area, let me tell you THAT was fun), I’ve still never really gotten into it. Much of my ambivelance most likely comes from no social relevence to my personal life.

    Still, my husband loves Irish Soda Bread so he really enjoys this time of year. We both really love corned beef, and I enjoy the sale prices on it this time of year, so we’ll eat that too in the next few days. I guess those could count as my participation.

  4. Oh gosh… that is tomorrow!! I had better remember to wear green. I’m not sure what else I will do to celebrate, but I will come up with something.

  5. I’ll pray for peace in Ireland, read some poetry, and make sure DD wears green to school. No corned beef (too salty) or stout (can’t hold my likker), but I bought potatoes at the farmer’s market to fix a hot dish DD likes.

  6. I don’t eat corned beef and don’t much like cabbage, but I WILL be making Irish soda bread. Mmmmmmm my mouth is watering already.

    Happy St. Patty’s day to you!

  7. Half Irish though I am, I have never ever liked St. pats day here in the Chicago area. I celebrate huge on March 20th the first day of spring. St Pats here is generally the last frigid blast of weather and all those little irish dancer girls freeze their bare legs off for the parade.
    What do you call a St. Pats’ scrooge? call them : ME!

  8. For years I owned no green clothing at all, many shades of green being less than kind to my complexion. I’ve mellowed recently; I’ll have to see if I can find my green sweater.

    It’s a good thing there’s no holiday celebrated by the wearing of mustard yellow.
