St. Patrick’s Day is one of the most famous cultural celebrations in the world (and one of the biggest drinking events😉). It’s a holiday best spent wearing green, commemorating the Irish, and drinking more whiskey/beer than usual.🍻

With all the excitement it can be easy to make a list of these common St. Patrick’s Day-related blunders. Let us help you avoid making any this year - or next:

1. Avoid greeting people (or captioning your Instagrams) with "Happy St. Patty’s Day".

The correct way to shorten St. Patrick’s Day is by saying St. Paddy not Patty.

2. Pace yourself.

Nobody wants to be holding their friend’s hair at noon, you’ve still got a lot of party left!

Make sure that you eat food before you drink, throughout the day at SPD, and stay hydrated by drinking water frequently during the celebrations.

3. Show some respect to Ireland! 🇮🇪 Don't exclusively drink your regular non-Irish liquours.

It might be tempting to stick to your regular craft beer, but don’t do it. There are a few great drinks from Ireland, so this is the ideal day to get to try them all. Find they're not your thing? You can always mix in a shot of Irish whiskey and return to your favourite drink of choice from the full bar options all day!

4. No matter how good it is. Using a fake Irish accent will only cause people to get annoyed with you.

Yes, your fake Irish accent is totally helping you pick up that red head... but this is one of the most amateur moves you can make, we suggest you leave the Irish accents to the Irish.

5. Body Paint < Face Paint.

You might be out of costume ideas, but covering your body up in green paint to blend in (or stand out from) the crowd isn’t always the best idea.

Body paint can be extremely difficult to wash off at the end of the night, and is likely go patchy at about mid-day.

We suggest checking out the face painters at the event to take your St. Paddy's day look up a notch!

6. Don't foget to purchase your SPDCanada tickets ahead of time.

This event is sold-out EVERY year! Avoid dissapointment and buy your tickets early - you don't want to be that friend with no place to go on the big day!

7. Last but not the least - don’t get caught without a safe ride home.

Splitting a LYFT is cheaper & easier than ever, especially with the SPD Promo Code!
