I have been told that there are three types of people in this world: those who don't celebrate St Patrick's Day, those who do from a cultural standpoint only, and Irishmen/women… which might as well be the same thing. The reason for me making this article is because many people celebrate St Patrick's day without knowing why it exists, what it means to them personally, or how they can make it fun! So here are some tips on how to celebrate Saint Patrick's day as an individual.
First off, if you're going to wear green on March 17th then you must take into consideration what type of personality you have. For example, green is my favorite color but if I decide to wear all green on St Patrick's day, I will look like a leprechaun. You might say that's not such a bad thing and you're right, but if your goal is to get really drunk then it may be in your best interest to wear blue or red because they are complementary colors of green and thus make it easier for people to spot you.
Then again, maybe you're just trying to have fun? The key in this case is wearing the color green in an outlandish way. This means don't just slap some green paint on your face or buy a cheap plastic novelty hat at Party City that would normally go with an outfit that has nothing to do with celebrating St Patrick's Day. Instead, come up with a creative theme and carry it out. The trick behind this is not to go overboard. If you're going to wear a green leprechaun hat, make sure it's well put together and you actually like it (you don't want to end up with buyers remorse when the night is over).

Are you celebrating in a small village pub surrounded by friends and pockets of strangers who will buy your drinks all night? Or perhaps there's a massive party that will take place at one fraternity or another across campus and everyone in attendance gets drunk for free (but still be responsible!) Whatever the case may be, know where you'll be when March 17th rolls around so you can plan accordingly.
Normally I'd advise you to consult your bank account before buying anything, but because St. Patty's Day falls on a Saturday this year that means the bars will be packed and drinks will be $5 more than usual, so you're going to want to drink as much free beer as possible before having someone buy one for you or just accepting it from a stranger. You, er they, might not be able to afford it otherwise. Also keep in mind that for many places there is a mandatory coat check fee even if you're just stepping out for a smoke break. This writer recommends skipping the wait at coat check by wearing layers and carrying gloves in case it gets too cold outside.
You'll also probably have more fun if you start drinking early. If you're looking for a traditional Irish pub experience it would be wise to get there before 7 PM, where the drinks are half priced.
If you want to go big this year, meet up with your buddies beforehand and do some shots or play some drinking games during happy hour at one of the bars near campus. There are plenty of great places on Green Street that will have drink specials all night long.
Water is H 2 O has two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen. Alcohol is C 2 H 6 O that's one carbon atom, six hydrogen - Oh wait what? Cheers to St Patrick's day everybody!
Remember: If you think nobody cares about you, try missing a couple of payments. - Have a great St Patrick's day everyone!
May all your troubles be little ones and may all your blessings be big ones - Happy Saint Patrick's Day !

For years, Mike had always told everyone "no other sport like baseball." True to his word, he keeps diligently collecting baseball-related stuff: cards, hats, jerseys, photos, signatures, hangers, shorts (you name it); especially anything related to the legendary player Jim Bouton.
Mike honorably received Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from University of Phoenix. In his graduation speech, he went on and on about baseball... until his best friend, James, signaled him to shut it.
He then worked for a domain registrar in Phoenix, AZ; speciallizng in auction services. One day at work, he saw the site JimBouton.com pop on the for-sale list. Mike held his breath until decided to blow all of his savings for it.
Here we are; the site is where Mike expresses passion to the world. And certainly, he would try diversing it to various areas rather than just baseball.
