Whether you are an Irish person, or not an Irish person, one thing is pretty obvious; St. Patty’s Day is easily one of the top 3 holidays ever created.
You get to pinch people who aren’t wearing green, which is kind of weird, but still pretty fun.
You get to have pub crawls and drink green beers, and it’s pretty much the only appropriate time of the year to break out your “Kiss Me I’m Irish” t-shirt.
What’s not to like? As it happens, there are a ton of St. Patty’s Day related items on the list this week, as well as March Madness related specials, and one mustache related item. Enjoy.
