Some Lessons For College Students On Keeping It Irish on St. Patrick'sDay

St Patrick's day is a magical time of year. For one wonderful day, people everywhere put aside their differences for a common love of... well, drunken debauchery, mostly. It seems like anywhere you go around St. Patrick's day, particularly on college campuses, you'll see people running around with green clothes, green food, and even green beer. Everywhere, that is, except Ireland. It turns out that most of the traditions we celebrate in North America on this most Irish of days actually have very little to do with how they celebrate it in Ireland. With our help, you can have all the fun of a North American St Patrick's day with none of the ridiculous stereotypes.

First things first, we need to understand what we're doing wrong. For that, you can check out this video from Howcast that explains just how different a traditional St. Patrick's day is from what your average college student is probably used to.

Not quite as much fun as ten gallons of green beer, I know, but there are some valuable pointers in there. For one, ditch the green food coloring. I'm no expert, but I don't think that St. Patrick would care what color your food is. Besides, no true Irish person would be caught dead drinking a blonde beer on St. Patrick's day anyway. That's what Guinness is for!
