in Ireland, they don't drink green beer - they consider it an abomination against nature.

instead they dump green food colouring into the River Liffey!

I like Irish dancing.

Wish I'd learned it growing up.

I celebrate Easter (i.e. chocolate bunnies and lots of food) and I'm not Catholic, and I celebrate Valentine's day by wearing red/pink and going out to dinner with my sweetie or whatever, I don't see St. Patrick's day as very different. It's origins are pretty meaningless at this point, it's juts a silly excuse to celebrate something with friends and family, to bring people together.
In Ireland, it's still a day of obligation (ie, expected to go to church).

No because I'm not Irish. And neither are 98.5% of people who celebrate it.

It's just tradition and an excuse to get sh*tfaced. And there's nothing wrong with that. Also it's on Sunday. Boo work the day after.

This always makes me giggle

There is nothing remotely Irish about me. I have a little French (Haitian) in me, I recently found out, and I'm more of a Bastille Day celebrator. Better food!

Anyway, I'll be at church.
I'm sure my mother will make corned beef (which I know isn't traditionally Irish) and cabbage.

I am 3/4 Irish, though my married name is Jewish. Growing up in NJ, I always wanted to go into the city to see the parade, but never did. I did go to the Belmar parade a couple times. These days, I'll wear green, and my claddagh or trinity jewelry, and a pin I have that shows my first name in Gaelic and English. I'll raise a glass of Baileys at some point, and am considering making some Irish stew and soda bread.

I'm 1/4 Irish. It was a great excuse to go out drinking when I was younger. I haven't really celebrated in a few years though. I always wear green and sometimes my mom invites us over for corned beef and cabbage but that's about it.

We would drink, But growing up never celebrated it like most american's My grandfather was hard core Irish(first in his family to be born in america, so he felt when non-irish would "pretend to be irish" and proceeded to get drunk, they were disrepecting our heritage. So out of respect for poppop. we would eat our cornbeef and cabbage (no one was eating lamb so no irish stew), drink a few drinks and eat irish soda bread and stayed home.

once poppop passed, we said the hell with that!! we would get so wasted we would forget what clan we were part of! one year, the day after st. patty's day I woke up in my closet!!

but this year it falls on sunday. so i'm just making us irish soda bread, toffee pudding with baileys cream and irish pasties.

oh well, i celebrate being irish everyday. and i'm not catholic so st. patricks is nothing special to me.

Sometimes I go to the local parade, sometimes I go out for boiled dinner, sometimes I go to my local pub "Mickey's". They have bagpipers and green beer and all that jazz (the original bar was Italian but those owners are long since dead, then it moved to the old city fire stations and became rather Irish).

I might make a nice bottle of minty green Bailey's for the occasion.

Going out tonight for my cousins birthday (not Sunday because I work early Monday), so I used ColorMe temp hair wand and did this.

Warning, if you decide to try this in the shower, you and the tub will turn green (but it works decently well).

Since the stuff washes out, being green for the night will amuse me.

I don't normally celebrate I'm actually using it as an excuse to temp dye my hair green....

No. I loathe packed bars, porta potties and cheap beer in plastic cups. I am not Irish so I do not feel obligated to celebrate the "holiday."

Porta-potties? Ew.

Never mind.

I'll wait for Bastille Day (which one of my friends had never heard of before knowing me, and misheard as "Best Deal Day.")

I get a lot of invites to go out on St Patrick's Day, there are always tons of things going on in the city. Most of the people who have extended an invite this year aren't actually Irish. I will probably end up going to a pub.
My grandmother is Irish but out of all the cultures I am mixed with I know the least about hers.
