4 Cheap, Fun Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day
Before the springtime weather sets in, there’s one last holiday to celebrate — St. Patrick’s Day! Though the holiday has origins in Ireland, people of all nationalities enjoy celebrating it with fun festivities and great food and drink. Here are some great ways to celebrate St. Paddy’s in the days leading up to March 17 without obliterating your savings.

1. Do Some Baking

Irish soda bread is a delicious baked good that can serve as either breakfast or dessert. If you’re feeling adventurous in the kitchen, you might attempt making a loaf or two — it’s a fun way to celebrate the holiday while saving money.

And, if you make a few loaves, it can also make a nice gift for neighbors or friends. You can also try making a dessert or after-dinner drink with Irish liqueur, like Bailey’s Irish Cream, in honor of the day — cheesecake, pudding and brownies all could benefit from an Irish twist.

2. Eat Corned Beef

The traditional St. Patrick’s Day dinner consists of corned beef and cabbage. Since this isn’t a dinner you have every day, it’s a fun, different meal to throw together for your family once a year. If you don’t think you can pull it off, check out your local restaurant or pub, as many will offer it as a special around the 17th, and it could make for a fun date night or family dinner out.

3. Hit the Parades

St. Patrick’s Day is often celebrated with a lot of parades, including Irish dancers and bagpipers. Finding a local parade that’s going on in the week or two before St. Patrick’s Day can be a great way to celebrate and is a blast for all ages. Obviously, viewing a parade is free, but the adults can also hit a bar for some festive green beer afterwards!

4. Download Some Irish Tunes

The Irish Tenors and other popular Irish artists have great renditions of famous songs with links to Ireland, such as “Danny Boy,” “When Irish Eyes are Smiling” and “The Fields of Athenry.” Just as Christmas carols help you get in the spirit in December, some songs from Ireland will help brighten up your March this year!
