It’s the day to don green clothing, get ye’ eyes smilin’, and put a bit of a jig in your step!
It doesn’t matter if you’re Irish for the day or Irish all the way—St. Patrick’s Day
is the day for song, lilting laughter, and spending time with family and friends.
For a wee bit o’ fun, we thought you might enjoy discovering how our Blue Mountain family likes to celebrate this festive day. From favorite foods to timeless traditions,
here’s how our “resident leprechauns” celebrate the wearin’ o’ the green!
“I’ll get together with a group of friends and cook some traditional St. Pat food like corned beef and cabbage, or colcannon sometimes. The best part is we’ll make black and tans and use the spoon to actually separate the 2 ingredients, preferably Harp and Murphy’s.” —Tom Page; Art Director
“I always spend St. Patrick’s Day with my family and friends. All the men wear kilts, we drink green beer, and we all go watch the parade.” —Jess Buse; Designer
“I don’t make food, but I do eat it. The green I wear is the green frosting on my lips from eating green cookies. I’ll listen to lots of Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly, and I always like to see the parade.” —Matt Friske; Designer
“We always go to my brother-in-law’s house and then walk over to the Irish bars, enjoy some Guinness and some Irish music, and then walk back for a corned beef and cabbage dinner made in the crock pot. What I’ve loved about St. Pat’s in recent years is that the weather has been so nice. It’s like the first taste of spring; something to look forward to.” —Kristin Thorne; Manager
“Even though we’re Italian, we like to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day each year in the same manner we would any special holiday: with food, of course! In honor of the Irish, we always make the same special annual dinner: corned beef, potatoes, and cabbage. And then for dessert, we have home-baked Irish soda bread that I think is the best I’ve tasted anywhere!” —Maria Isabella; Editor
“I’ll definitely play some Irish music, including Tommy Sands, and also The McNulty Family’s ‘O’Hara from Tara, McNamara from Mayo,’ which my father would play every St. Patrick’s Day. I’ll also be on the phone a good bit with calls to my family. Wherever we are, we always raise a pint to my father, who has been gone from us now much too long. (Just like the Irish to end with a twinkle and tear in ye’ eye!)” —Liza McNamara; Sr. Editor
