You don’t have to be of Irish descent to love celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. While many people don’t know the holiday began when St. Patrick was said to have driven the snakes out of Ireland, the day is one that crosses cultures.

There are many ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Wearing the color green as well as indulging in Irish food and drinks are customary, but there are fun ways to get prepared for the celebrations too.
