St. Patrick's Day is so much more than alcohol

10 Things You Can Do Instead Of Drinking Or Partying On St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day is coming up soon and then green will be everywhere. Now, St. Patrick's Day is both a cultural celebration and a religious one that is held every year on March 17th. It's going to be a good time. Now, if you decide to drink on this day, I'm not going to judge you for it. But there are ten other things that one can also do other than drinking when it comes to St. Patrick's Day.

1. A scavenger hunt

You can do this anywhere and with anyone. You can get creative with it. You can play it in your house, backyard, town, and so on. You could do a photo scavenger hunt, or you could collect things like prizes. Or you could do both.

2. Run or walk a 5K

This is something that you can do alone, or with your friends and/or family. Strive for the gold!

3. Go to a concert

Maybe your town or a town near you has a concert that you can go to. You could go to a concert where there is Irish music being played, and you can dance along to the dancers that are on stage.

4. Try different Irish food

It's never too late to try something new. Popular Irish food consists of Irish stew and bacon and cabbage. You could check out different local restaurants to see if they have any specials going on.

5. Attend a parade

Many cities like Boston, San Diego, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, and Cleveland all have parades taking place on St. Patrick's day. There is a lot that goes into parades and it sounds like fun.

6. Go out to eat or stay in and cook

Whether you go alone, with your friends, or family. You could go to your favorite restaurant to get some food, or you could try something new. Whatever you feel like doing. If you don't feel like going out to eat, you can stay in and cook an Irish meal.

7. Rollerblading or ice skating

I've never tried ice skating, but it sounds like a lot of fun. I haven't roller bladed in a long time. So, it might be time to bust out the skates and go. This is something fun that you can do with your friends and family or you could go by yourself.

8. Catch a movie

Whether you want to stay at home or go to a theater, you could watch a movie or have a movie marathon. This is another great thing that you can do either by yourself, or with your friends/family. You could catch a documentary too about Irish culture. There are so many options to choose from.

9. Crafts project

You can make a craft by yourself or with people. You could do a craft that has a St. Patrick's Day theme to it. Crafts can be fun and a good way to let your creative side out. You could be good or bad at art. It doesn't matter.

10. Have a game night

Invite friends or family over and have a game night. Bring all your favorite games, play some music, have food and drinks and just have fun.

There are probably way more things that you can do on St. Patrick's Day that I didn't include on this list. Whatever you decide to do on this day, I hope you have fun and have a great St. Patrick's Day. Because what it really comes to is celebrating St.Patrick, the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, Irish culture and heritage, and just having fun with the ones that you love. Have a great St. Patrick's Day!

To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before...

One of the things that I love most is space. I am a HUGE space nerd. Literally ask any of my friends. I was first introduced to space when my dad dragged me to see Star Trek. Since walking out of that movie theater in 6th grade, becoming an astronaut hasn't been just some wild dream that could come true.

Summer Slump

Summer is a time for fun in the sun, hanging out with friends, and living it up, but for some people, that's not the case. Summer is a nightmare for idle minds. Let me explain what I mean by that. For people with mental illness having the extra time to think and relax can be devastating for their mental health. Now, this isn't a problem for everyone but for some people who suffer from mental illness, this is a reality.
