Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all! Whether you have Irish blood or not, it's time to celebrate!
Pop Quiz-- Did you know the first St. Patrick’s Day parade was held in America? Can you guess where? (Answer is at the end!)
We have been celebrating this wonderful Irish holiday for over 120 years. While we may not be going out to restaurants or having big parties quite yet, there are plenty of ways to properly celebrate in the comfort of your own home:
Hire a piper: This may sound crazy, but why not go all in and hire a professional bag piper or local Irish band? Everyone knows when there's good music, it’s a good party. Browse your local listings for Irish musicians and enjoy a traditional touch on such a celebrated holiday.
Get decorative: It’s an easy way to make a small (or big) celebration more fun and festive. If you’re not the decorator type, don’t worry! Even a few little things here and there add a touch St. Patty’s Day luck. Your local grocery or dollar store is sure to have everything you need to celebrate in green.
Quench your thirst: Grab some Guinness or Jameson whiskey and toast to friendship, love, and loyalty! Hold up your glasses and say "sláinte" (pronounced "slawn-chuh"). The Irish way to cheers!
That toast doesn’t tickle your fancy? Try this traditional Irish toast instead:
“May your troubles be less, your blessings be more, and nothing but happiness come through your door!”
Get cookin': Slicing carrots, chopping potatoes, dicing cabbage, and cutting the corn beef can be an exhausting day in the kitchen! But how rewarding is it when it’s all done?
Satiate your taste buds with the unique combination of flavors corn beef and cabbage offers. It’s a holiday, so don’t be shy when it’s time to load up your plate!
Relax: Ahhh…the best part of the day has finally come. After all the day’s activities, it’s time to take a well-earned break in your favorite area- your Freeflow spa.
You can never have enough bathing suits, so take this opportunity to buy a new green bathing suit, you don’t want to get pinched after you’ve made it all day!
Have a great St. Patrick's Day, Freeflow family. Sláinte!
P.S. Did you guess New York City? If you did, well done!
