Dressing Up In The Best Irish Tee Shirts And Costumes On St. Patrick’s Day

8 Jan

If you are between the ages of 21 and 30, then there is a good chance that you really like to party hard on all of those holidays that involve getting out with your friends and drinking. Saint Patrick’s Day is one of those holidays, and it is the best of them in my opinion. On all of those other holidays you either don’t have an excuse to dress crazy or everyone else is dressed just as crazy as you are. On Saint Patrick’s Day, you can wear your popular Irish tshirts and other things to really stand out.

People haven’t always worn green on St. Patrick’s Day. In fact, when people actually wore anything at the beginning to celebrate they would wear blue and the whole holiday was full of religious ceremony. Green came into fad because Saint Patrick would use green clovers to teach the Irish Celts about the Father, The Son, and the Holy Ghost. Now we wear green to celebrate Ireland while we drink heavily. Oh, how times have changed.

The sheer variety of awesome Irish tees out there is pretty quite staggering. The reason for this is because there are just so many t-shirt vendors on the Interweb vying for the market that they will have shirts for nearly every occasion, including St. Patrick’s Day. Even if you don’t get all crazy with your outfit, you should at least participate in the festivities enough to wear a hilarious green shirt. You don’t want to get pinched, do you?

I have to admit that I am the nuttiest person you’ll ever meet on Saint Patrick’s Day. I dress in the most insane getup you can imagine, and I change my outfit every year. Last year I wore my traditional Irish t-shirt, but I put sequins all over it so that I glittered where ever I walked. I also had a green sports jacket that I sewed a massive clover to the back of. All in all, it was a really great costume and no one wore anything nearly as eye-catching that night.

You absolutely have to try going out and doing it up right like I do this year. It’s okay to wear Irish pride t shirts, but everyone already does that. If you want some shots bought for you and if you want everyone to laugh and have a good time when they are around you, then dress up and act like an absolute fool. You can be a restrained as you want to be all year long. On Saint Patrick’s Day, it’s okay to let your hair down and do a jig.


A Grand Tradition Of Awesome Irish T-Shirts

31 Dec

Lets not play to stereotypes and say that every Irishman is an alcoholic. I’m Irish and I wouldn’t say that I was an alcoholic under any circumstance. That being said, we do need to address that I’m a big fan of recreational drinking and I know from first-hand experience that most of my Irish buddies are too. We wear our Irish drinking tees and we drink our dirty Irish whiskey and we have a blast. There’s nothing wrong with that, is there?

Each year we get only one holiday where we can be the heroes. No one thinks about we Sons of the Emerald Isle on the other drinking holidays, do they? We can wear our Irish party shirts, dye our hair red, and dance a jig on the top of the bar and no one would say anything to us. We pull those kind of shenanigans on New Year’s Eve, and we’re likely to spend the night in the slammer.

Why spend our blessed, time-honored Holiday fighting amongst ourselves? Half of us want to party and celebrate while the other half just want to berate us for partying and celebrating. Seems a bit of a shame, doesn’t it? It’s a tale as old as time, though. If you get more than three Irishmen together, they’re sure as rain going to have a tussle.

We should make this year different. The holy rollers should know by now that we’re not going to stop the revelries of St. Patrick’s Day while there is still Irish blood flowing free. I propose a simple solution. A meeting in the middle, as Danny Boy would have liked, is what is in order. We will, of course, continue to drink ourselves green on St. Patty’s Day. The holy rollers, in turn, can sit patiently by the phone for our confessionals before they drive us home.

I’m not giving up the one time of year we get to be the shining, drunken, stumbling stars of the show. Years ago, people would have scoffed at the idea of “Irish pride”. Our people were looked at like vermin. All this time later, we are now treated just like every other red-blooded American. If that’s not a reason to toast our glasses together and slosh beer all over our awesome Irish t-shirts, I really don’t know what is.
