ToP THIS: Gang Green

Leprechauns, shamrocks, rainbows, pots of gold, beer and green are all stereotypes that come to mind when one thinks of St. Patrick's Day. And although it is a holiday primarily associated with individuals of Irish decent, there are ways we can all celebrate and embrace our "Irish" side. From anything as little as adding a splash of green to your apparel to cooking a traditional Irish corned beef and cabbage dinner for your family; we can all participate in this holiday.

So what exactly can you do to join the festivities? Here's a list of events and activities for you to do to enjoy our St. Patty's Day:

Start your day off with a traditional Irish breakfast: fried eggs, pork sausages, bacon, pudding (black and white blood sausage), tomato, potatoes, a substantial helping of toasted bread and hot coffee or breakfast tea. This menu would probably work for lunch or dinner too!

Enjoy a nice beverage. Be it a pint of Guinness, some other beer dyed green, an Irish Coffee, green milk, a green cocktail, or a shamrock shake, treat yourself to something tasty.

Visit an Irish pub. If you're not over 21, you could just go there for lunch or dinner and soak up the scene.

Cook up a nice corned beef and cabbage dinner or have some fish 'n chips if corned beef isn't really your style.

Watch a movie. Here's some films that feature Irish characters and/or themes: "Once," "The Departed," "The Commitments," "The Informer," "The Quiet Man," "Angela's Ashes," "Circle of Friends," "In the Name of the Father," "Michael Collins," "My Left Foot," "Gangs of New York," "The Matchmaker," or "The Secret of Roan Inish."

If all else fails, the last thing I can suggest is for you to go out and get a tattoo that reads "Kiss Me, I'm Irish". Just kidding! Nonetheless, enjoy this St. Patty's Day and emerge yourself in the day and festivities!

Spread Love. Live Life. Be Inspired.
