As citizens of the original and largest “melting pot,” Irish Americans will tell you that everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.  Enjoying corned beef and cabbage, standing along St. Paddy’s Day parades, and drinking green beers, you’ll see folks of all ethnic backgrounds celebrating with the Irish on March 17th.  That said, I still have a hard time getting behind a holiday that’s not part of my heritage or upbringing.  Just to be fair, I don’t celebrate Cinco de Mayo either.

So instead of dressing up like a leprechaun to stand in the cold, rain-filled parades around town today or consuming green beer, I’ve got these three alternative photos to share on St. Patrick’s Day.  What do you think?  Do you have a favorite below?

  1. This is a great St.P. Days alternative! Love the idea and creativity! Hard to decide which is my favorite. I should go buy some crayons and draw something…

  2. I can’t choose! They’re all great 🙂

    • Wow! Thanks so much! I loved your green apple post from earlier tonight! I was looking at it on my phone, though, and was too lazy to type out a comment on that, so I hope you will forgive me and accept this comment instead! 🙂

  3. One of my favorite days! I think I like the first and last one the most 😀


I love hearing from you!
