1. Make Some Green Food

If you aren’t thrilled about corned beef and cabbage, try adding a few drops of green food coloring to your favorite foods! It’s easy enough and adds a fun St. Patrick’s Day flare to your average meal.

2. Play Irish Music

Music is an excellent way to get you into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit! There’s great traditional Irish music like that of The Dubliners or The Chieftains. However, if traditional Irish music isn’t your thing, U2, Van Morrison, and The Cranberries are all Irish musicians you can jam out to throughout the day.
