Cities across the globe go green for St. Patrick’s Day, the most celebrated Irish holiday. London is no exception! With celebrations, all week long such as the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Trafalgar Square Festival, let’s see how this festival can be celebrated differently anywhere you are!
Go for Irish coffee
If you are not a Guinness person, improve your Irish coffee skills! This cocktail blend is made of piping hot coffee, brown sugar and Irish Whisky. This beautiful mixture is covered with a whipped heavy cream. This brew can keep you toasty, without getting one drop of green beer spilled on your shirt. Make one, or try it at any Irish pub.
Donate for a Green Cause
While you’re having a great holiday, think about those who are less fortunate. Visit humanitarian websites, and help struggling people around the world to re-build their lives. Or you can hit two birds with one stone; Add the book “Zest!” to your collection, which is packed with dozens of Irish Chefs’ best dishes! The funds collected goes to hospice care.
Dance in the crowd
There’s nothing like listening to Irish music live, as it gets the heart going. Pull your dancing partner, and head to a live show, local Irish Club or parade. Let the music flow in your bones, and the movements will come along. Do not worry about the watchers and just dance!
Take a selfie
Seven years ago, a campaign around going green started. Ever since, major landmarks such as London Eye, Dublin City Centre, Nelson’s Column, The SSE Hydro and Town Hall Clock light up in green colours on this holy day. Take your mobile phone, and take a selfie in front of these green towers.
Have a home party
Not much of a drinker? Leave out the drinking-on-St-Patrick’s-Day tradition, and create your own custom. Have a non-alcoholic party at home with some friends! Sip on some minerals (soft drinks), and watch Irish movies.
Magical Vegas- the best online casino, brings a special offer for this holy day! Do not forget to opt-in the St. Patrick’s Tourney to win some freebies. Try your luck on slot games such as Irish Gold, Leprechaun goes to Egypt and Aztec Idol. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
