friday favorites – best st. patrick’s day ideas

I’m not Irish at all. Growing up in New York, I felt like I was in the minority because of this fact. In elementary school, St. Patrick’s Day meant someone’s mom brought homemade Irish soda bread and we made leprechaun arts and crafts. As an adult, the focus is on green beer. No matter what your plans are for St. Patrick’s this year, here are a few fun ideas to incorporate into your plans, including two alternatives to green beer.
