Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day that Don’t Require Drinking

Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day that Don’t Require Drinking

Reading Time: 4 minutesThe green beer. The tacky hats. The “I’m Not Drunk, I’m Irish!” shirts. You know these things. Most people in the U.S. celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by dressing in green, covering themselves in glitter (which I have no objection to— I love glitter!) speaking in horribad “Irish” accents, and getting drunk out of their minds.
