 In case you weren't able to make it out to Dublin, the heart of St. Patrick's Day celebrations, just make sure you're wearing green today and all will be forgiven. But honestly, Dublin is an absolutely insane place today yet manages to be filled with both good-natured celebrators and Garda (police) alike! The streets are packed with people wearing leprechaun hats, drinking some sort of Irish beer, and singing a raucous tune. The energy is unbelievable and being here, today, on the most patriotic and happiest day of the year, is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Luck o' the Irish to you, and make sure to cheer Slainte (cheers in Irish!) when you hold up your Guinness tonight-- wherever you are.
