Five Things: Our Saint Patrick’s Day “Traditions”

keysmash five things featured image

Every Friday we’ll pick a theme and then five things (hence the name! We’re so original!!!!!) that fit that theme. Feel free to make your own choices in the comments, or send them to us on Twitter. This week we’re talking about the things people associate with March 17th, whether they’re Irish or not. This holiday has been adopted by people worldwide (mostly as an excuse to drink, but hey), and it doesn’t have quite the same stress-inducing holiday stigma that family-gathering type holidays have.

My town’s St Patrick’s Day parade
