St. Patrick’s Day Ideas For Family Fun

St. Patrick’s Day is an Irish holiday that is celebrated every year in March, but it’s not just the Irish that enjoy this festive occasion.  In fact, people around the nation celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with parades, green attire and even parties that bring family and friends together.  Speaking of family, there are a number of ways that you can make St. Patrick’s Day a festive and fun-filled family holiday.


 


Take Part In a Parade


 


Whether you are involved directly or simply enjoy watching a St. Patrick’s Day parade from the sidelines, make sure that you attend at least one.  These festive events include everything from music to floats and local residents coming together to celebrate this annual holiday.  You can enjoy a parade with your family by participating together, or simply by watching from afar.


 


Dress The Part


 


One of the longest standing traditions for St. Patrick’s Day is the requirement of green attire.  Whether it’s a shirt, shamrock pin, pants or even a jacket, not wearing green often means you get pinched from good-natured family and friends.  If you want to join in on the celebration as a family, make sure that everyone is wearing green before leaving the house.


 


Have A Party


 


If you really want to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, do so by hosting a party in your home.  You can invite family, friends, neighbors and other local residents who share in your festiveness.  Because the color green is so commonly associated with St. Patrick’s Day, it’s only natural that you would want to serve lime JELL-O, ice cream and even green KOOL-AID to your guests.  Don’t forget to decorate with the green theme in mind by using holiday plates, cups and napkins, table coverings, streamers and even balloons.


 


Festive Dining


 


For Thanksgiving, many families eat turkey.  For St. Patrick’s Day, many families eat cabbage because, well, it’s green.  Green beans, vegetables, spinach, fruits and other green foods also remain popular choices for those looking to dine with the green theme in mind.


 


Look For Luck


 


When it comes to luck, the four-leaf clover is a very common symbol and it is also associated with St. Patrick’s Day.  This means that one of the best ways to enjoy family fun on this festive holiday is to go out in search of four-leaf clovers.  Children especially love this and they feel a great sense of accomplishment if they locate the rare find.  One of the greatest places to start looking is in your own backyard.
