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.
