St. Patrick's Day Party Ideas

Whether you are Irish or not, St. Patrick's Day is one of the best holidays of the year.

You get to have a few drinks, eat stuff chocked full of green food dye, and dress like a leprechaun... Good times!

Here's our definitive guide to being prepared for the luckiest day of the year:

Break out the green! Go for a traditional or sexy leprechaun look or load up on green. Don't forget the fake Irish accent if you don't have a real one... just lay off the "lucky charms" jokes and you'll be right! Check out for a selection of costumes and accessories to get you in the spirit. Here's a sampling...

The leprechaun hat is always a favourite, and will have you fitting right in at the pub... at least you'll stand out enough to get served first! If you want a bit of extra flair, consider going for a green wig, like the ones below available online at

Most of us just think of beer on St. Patrick's Day, and with good reason, Guinness beer consumption more than doubles on this day! But don't paint yourself into a corner, there are a heap of Irish treats to be had out there...
