It makes no difference where you’re from; when St. Patrick’s Day rolls around, we’re all a little Irish. Traditionally a religious holiday in Ireland celebrating St. Patrick who’s credited with bringing Christianity to the country, St. Patrick’s Day celebrations were brought to the United States by Irish immigrants who wanted to connect with their Irish roots through dance, song, and dyeing the occasional river green. St. Patrick’s Day celebrations occur on March 17 throughout the states with more than 100 parades, the largest being in New York City and Boston.
Even if you’re not near a great St. Patrick’s Day parade, you can celebrate the holiday with a party with family and friends. Fortunately, celebrating this holiday doesn’t have to put you in the red. With a little planning and imagination, you can stay in the green tippin’ the hat to St. Patrick. No blarney about it!
Print fun pictures of leprechaun hats, mustaches, and other things, and then glue them on sticks. Hang a couple of sheets and put out your iPad; you have a fun photo booth!
Making smart financial choices takes dedication and patience, and if you’re going to succeed, you must incorporate money-saving strategies throughout all aspects of your life. Be persistent and you can achieve financial independence. However, if you cut off all pleasure from your life because it costs a little money, you’ll surely give up and fail. Just because you’re trying to save money, it doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself of a great time connecting with family and friends. Have that party. With a little luck o’ the Irish, you and your guests will have more fun than you can shake a shillelagh at!
