St. Patrick’s Day is coming up fast. Well, if it’s your favorite holiday, then it’s probably not coming fast enough.

What is St. Patrick’s Day all about? I honestly don’t know the history of the holiday or why it came about, but surely your internet search engine can tell you all you want to know.

As for me, I just know it’s a fun day to dress up, have fun, and hope for the luck of the Irish. I’ll certainly try to look up the history of it all, just as soon as I stop thinking of a fun St. Patrick’s Day costume or outfit.

These are just a few ideas I have for homemade costumes fun for this special holiday. But for the adults, please remember to never drink too much, always have a designated driver, and obey local drinking and alcohol laws.

Have a great St. Patrick’s Day. I hope you take pictures of your outfit and share them. We can all have a lot of fun with this fun day.
