St Patricks Day Crafts
St. Patrick’s Day, or St. Patrick’s Day, as it is colloquially known, is fast approaching – that fun and festive day when people of all ethnicities celebrate the Irish heritage and wear everything in green, from cloverleaves to simple green T-shirts. People of all ages can join in the fun – children can enjoy arts and crafts and eat delicious Irish sweets, while adults can go to pubs in the evening and sip Guinness and traditional Irish spirits. Although St. Patrick’s Day can be a lot of fun and a reason to celebrate for people who are having fun, it can also be very expensive if you are not careful. Drinks and food can be very expensive on this special occasion, and participating in parades and buying handicrafts for the kids can quickly exhaust your money. However, if you want to enjoy the typical St Patrick’s Day celebrations and still stay within your budget, the luck of the Irish is on your side.
The fact is that St. Patrick’s Day can be celebrated quite frugally without having to miss out on the good times. In many towns and cities around the country, especially in areas where there is a large and vibrant Irish community, St. Patrick’s Day parades and concerts are held, often free of charge to the public, and it is a real joy to visit. Pubs sometimes offer drinks and discounts on special Irish dishes, but if you indulge yourself too much it can quickly blow your budget.
Take a look at the following ways to enjoy St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in an affordable yet fun way:
1. Just because it’s St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t mean you have to go out and get drunk. Drinks are very expensive, and as mentioned above, even discounted drinks can add up. Go out to dinner with your friends or invite your closest friends and do karaoke with traditional Irish songs.
2. keep an eye out for free St Patrick’s Day events. Parades, concerts, fairs – these are usually in abundance on this day and are great fun, especially for children. You can try Irish sweets and learn more about Irish heritage without spending a penny.
3. decorate your home to celebrate St Patrick’s Day with your family, especially your children. Taking your children to art and craft fairs and exhibitions can be a bit expensive, so being creative is crucial here. You can use the materials you have at home or create cool designs with your computer and hang them around the house to help your kids grow into the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day.
4. if you usually like to drink on St. Patrick’s Day, don’t forget the beer like Guinness or the green beer from the party. Irish spirits like Bailey’s or whiskey can be very expensive, not to mention a little heavy.
5. Instead of a night on the town, you should have a party at home. Tell the guests to bring their own liquor or beer so you don’t have to go crazy in the liquor store, which can sometimes raise prices on St. Patrick’s Day due to increased business. You can download some Irish songs to play at the party and have a fun party at home with your friends. There is no reason to go anywhere.
6. there is no need to get an expensive and stupid suit for St. Patrick’s Day. Save your money and be creative with the clothes you already have – wear a green t-shirt with green shoes and a green hat, or design something yourself. If you don’t have green items, borrow them from a friend. Have fun!
7 Although St. Patrick’s Day is an all-encompassing holiday that anyone, regardless of their origin, can celebrate, it does NOT have to be celebrated. You can skip the celebration if you want, and if you don’t want to celebrate, you can let off steam online.
8. take advantage of the sales on St. Patrick’s Day. Many shops offer coupons on or around St. Patrick’s Day, and while many offer discounts on Irish clothes or green items, some even give discounts on other products. If you need items around the house, shopping on St. Patrick’s Day is not a bad idea if you want to save some green.
9. stay at home and have a drink before you go into town instead of drinking. “Pre-Game”, as it is playfully called, can save you a lot of money. Some pubs charge the same price for a drink as liquor stores charge for a bottle!
10. Keep things simple. Instead of enjoying all the excesses that St. Patrick’s Day has to offer, you should enjoy the historical significance of the day. Go online and research St. Patrick’s Day, download traditional Irish songs or go to the library and read books about St. Patrick’s Day or Irish history. It may not sound as fun as going out, but it’s much cheaper and you can learn a few things.
As you can see, saving the environment on St. Patrick’s Day is relatively easy if you get creative and plan your parties wisely. If you avoid expensive drinks or drink before the party, you can still enjoy your party without burning a hole in your wallet. Decorating your home and letting your children participate in the creative celebration of St. Patrick’s Day will also save you a lot of money on expensive handicrafts and Irish delicacies. After all, the key to a frugal St. Patrick’s Day celebration is the key to enjoying the free festivities that are available. There are numerous free concerts and parades in the city, most of which are for children and offer fun for the whole family.
