Irish Pride Ideas You Can Steal Straight From Dublin

Mar 14 2014 - 11:10am

St. Paddy's Day celebrations are upon us. This weekend in America, partygoers will use the feast day of a fourth-century saint as an excuse to take Jameson shots and overuse the pickup line "Kiss me — I'm Irish." But looking back at past parades in Dublin, Ireland, there are definitely more wholesome ways to show your Irish pride. Check out these festive ideas for going green this weekend at a local parade or bar.

First of all, this was a real-life St. Paddy's Day party in Vegas.

Come on, America. We can do better.

Grab some green onesies, and dress as a group of leprechauns.

What's the correct collective name for leprechauns? A pack? A gang? A troop of leprechauns?

Sprinkle some shamrocks into your wardrobe.

Throw on some lucky tights.

Fly the Irish flag on your eyelashes.

Or opt for shamrock tattoos.

Why not just go for it and paint your face?
