Things to Do on St. Patrick's Day

Guest Author - Susan D. Bates

As a college student, there are many ways that you and your friends can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. See the list below for some ideas to help you celebrate the holiday:

Participate in a St. Patrick’s Day celebration
Join a St. Patrick’s Day celebration on your campus. Great places to check for possible celebrations include your college’s student activities office; related academic departments, such as international or European studies; or student clubs that focus on culture. If there is no planned celebration, you can create one and invite fellow students to join.

Learn about the history of St. Patrick’s Day
It can be fun, and sometimes eye opening, to learn about the history of holidays. Research the history of St. Patrick’s Day by doing an Internet search or visiting your college’s library to see what you can learn about the holiday.

Watch the St. Patrick’s Day parade on TV
Gather a group of friends around a television to watch the St. Patrick’s Day parade on television.

Wear green
Since the color green has become associated with St. Patrick’s Day, it can be fun to wear as many green items of clothing possible. You could make it a fun contest with friends to see who can wear the most items of green clothing.

Drink green beverages
Bars in college towns often serve green beer on St. Patrick’s Day. If you would rather not drink beer, try adding a little green food coloring to another light colored drink to turn it green.

Eat traditional Irish food
It can be fun and tasty to add some Irish food to your diet on Saint Patrick’s Day. Search the Internet for easy-to-make Irish dishes. Have friends get together to help you cook and eat.

Find a fun fact about Ireland
Visit your college’s library or complete an Internet search to learn about Ireland. Try to find an interesting fact many people may not be familiar with and then impress your friends and professors with this new knowledge.

Visit a museum
Take a trip to a local museum that has information about St. Patrick’s Day or Ireland. If you are not sure if the museums in your area have any displays or information related to Ireland or St. Patrick’s Day, give them a call or see if their website has a list of their collections.

As you make your St. Patrick’s Day plans with your friends, discuss items on the list above to see what sounds like the most fun. Also, brainstorm to come up with other fun ideas.
