5. DIY St Patrick’s Day at home
You don’t necessarily need to go out to celebrate St Patrick’s Day, you can throw your own party at home.
You will need the following:
– Green face paint
– Green decorations (you can cut out four-leaved clovers out of paper and hang up a few green streamers)
– Green beer (use green food coloring and slowly pour the beer into the pint glass and watch the color mix. You can add a few more drops if you want a more vibrant color.)
– A pot of gold (you can buy golden coin chocolates at your local sweetshop)
– Friends and family
Whatever you do Saturday just make sure it’s a good one but please don’t drink and drive. Happy St Patrick’s Day and may the luck of the Irish be with you!
