The St. Patrick’s Blog Hop is Here!

  1. LOL It’s crazy how huge St Patrick’s Day is here in the States, I don’t ever remember people partying or celebrating this hard in the UK. Of course, I never lived in Ireland (I’m sure they party hard on St Pat’s ) but in Wales, Scotland and England…nothing to major as I remember it.
    And so I see it as nothing to major, either. This year is the first time I’ve actually done anything to mark the occasion — promo to grab my Irish Romance story for free in most ebook stores. And it’s really got me in the mood for going green; I’ll be popping my green cherry tomorrow with my first party for St Pat’s! WOOT

    I’ve always been terrified of getting pinched on St. Patrick’s Day, so I always wear head to toe green! One time I didn’t, and got pinched all day long. So, I never go without green on March 17th!!!

  4. It doesn’t mean much to me either! lol

    I don’t have crazy memories, but I have fond memories of marching in the Jersey City St. Paddy’s Day parade in HS. Junior year was most special because I had a honest-to-goodness Irish boyfriend that year. I felt like I was marching in “his” parade.

  6. Not sure if I have a crazy memory of St. Patty’s…but every year we have some crazy fun at a friend’s house! They do a big party every year (it’s tonight!!) My family never celebrated either…no one drop of Irish in my house. Hubby is like 6.25% that he likes to point out every St. Patty’s day. LOL!

    No special things here just a few drinks with some friends at a local bar. I wish I could see your hubby all dressed up sounds like fun 😉

    Happy St. Pattys Day!

    Since ii take medicine that doesn’t allow me to drink I have never really celebrated St. Patricks Day. I did go to the Mavericks game last year. It was a lot of fun watching every one else getting drunk in the suite!

  10. Sarah says:

    Crazy huh? Anytime one goes to a bar on St Patty’s day you are gonna get some crazy memories. It is very amusing watching all the drunks drink their green beer and think they are cool.

    I am not Irish but have served green beer in my bar here in Spain

  12. You are not alone in the non-celebrating. The most I do is cook up the corned beef, LOL. I don’t even decorate. And will only wear green because I happen to like it. Of course, I’m Scottish not Irish 😀 Now if we’re talking Robbie Burns’ Day…

  13. I don’t really have any crazy memories of St. Patrick’s Day, but did go to an Irish pub one year with friends from University.

    All the best!

  15. Pamela says:

    Dang, I have no St. Patrick’s Day stories to share. It’s not really a major holiday to me. There have been times I’ve completely forgotten it but when I remember I do try to dress up in green at least. Just for fun, you know. 🙂
    Thanks for the giveaway.

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day. At least your hubby should enjoy it. 😉

    I don’t do much on St. Patrick’s Day. I pretty much wear green and then eat green food. That’s it.

    I love any excuse for a party. So I whoop it up every year. usually cook traditional have people over. Since opening my brewery/bar, it’s been a serious no-brainer.
    Beer! That’s what St. Paddy’s day means to me (not green. Craft)
    thanks for the post.

  23. catherine c says:

    i have a few crazy St Patrick’s day memories…one would when witnessing some crazy drunk people at the NYC Parade…lol

  24. Elizabeth (BookAttict) says:

    It’s still kinda hazy, but it involved a bunch of us cutting school and going to New York City to see the parade, hanging in a bar with 2 guys named Yanig and Big John learning how to do shots of Tequila — missing the parade, and not having a ride home from the train station once we got back…

  25. Shannon says:

    I don’t have a crazy St. Patrick’s Day story unless you count that time I entered over 100 blog posts just for a chance to win a Kindle or Nook – LOL. That’s about as crazy as I get.

    Thanks for the giveaway and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

  28. Sue Sattler says:

    It doesn’t really mean anything to me either, unless I go to another Irish fest and then the men in their kilts and their sexy accents…that makes me love St Patrick’s day and forget my name!!!

    when St. Patty’s Day falls during the week, I usually walk from work over to the parade trying to catch my cousin marching with the FDNY. at 6’7″ he’s not that hard to miss!

    I also so look forward to the corn beef and cabbage dinner, we only have it once a year, but it’s so yum!
