Ah, the season of the Irish. Most St. Patrick’s Days, we cram as many fun activities into the day as possible. Parades. Sporting green. Corned beef and cabbage. Green beer. But, this year, things are different. Among the pandemic, many of us are having a low-key St. Patrick’s Day at home. While that may sound boring, it’s actually the perfect excuse to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day the stoner way.
Whether you’re celebrating with your special someone, your friends, or just your dog, we’re here to help you plan the ultimate at-home St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Our best tip is to make the entire day as festive as possible. Wear that green and the zany accessories. Decorate your house. The more energy you put into the day, the more fun it will be. And, to cap off your holiday, make sure you stock up on something extra green — top-shelf cannabis.
7 Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Home
1. Play a Game
When is the last time you played a game that didn’t involve a screen? This St. Patrick’s Day, celebrate by playing some classic holiday games.
- Gold Hunt: Leprechauns are always on the search for their gold, so it’s time to send your friends on a gold hunt of their own. Hide gold coins throughout the area. Divide your guests into two teams. Give each team a bucket or bag and send them on a hunt for as much gold as possible. Set a timer to make things go faster. When the time is up, have the two teams count how much gold they collected. The team with the most gold wins a dab.
- Gold Coin Toss: This game will require some Leprechaun pots and gold coins, which can be found at the dollar store, or you can simply use bowls. Place the pots on the floor and then mark out a line a few feet away from the pots. Each player must stand behind the line and try to toss the gold coins into the pots. Take a dab each time you get a coin in.
2. Make a St. Patrick’s Day Playlist
Spend some time putting together a St. Patrick’s Day playlist on your favorite streaming service. Choose songs that spark thoughts of Ireland, green rolling hills, Leprechauns, and celebration. Then, pack a bowl, turn on the music, and blaze.
3. Read the Real History of Ireland
Pack a bowl, and spend some time reading about the real history of Ireland. There is far more to the holiday than just dancing and the guzzling of green beer! Learning about the history behind the day will give you a deeper understanding of what it is you are smoking about.
4. Eat a Traditional Irish Breakfast
Start your day on an Irish note by lighting up something green and then eating a traditional Irish Breakfast to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
Traditionally, the most common ingredients for breakfast foods in Ireland are bacon rashers, pork sausages, fried or scrambled eggs, white or black pudding, and toast with fried tomato. Brown soda bread, hash browns, and baked beans are also often included.
There are so many options when it comes to meals with these ingredients. Let the green in your bowl inspire you to get creative — and festive!
5. Play Hookey
Take the whole day off from work and enjoy some festive celebration. Eat your traditional Irish breakfast in bed, watch an Irish movie, and smoke heavy on some of your favorite St. Patrick’s Day strains. Plan a whole day of fun St. Patrick’s Day activities.
6. Say “Erin go Bragh”
This is a Gaelic saying that translates to “Ireland Forever” in English. It’s essentially a way of showing support and love for the country. You can also throw in some other Irish phrases during the day, such as saying “sláinte” to cheers when you take a dab or bong rip.
7. Pamper Yourself With the Magic of the Leprechauns
Pretend you’re bathing in the magic of the Leprechauns by taking a bubble bath worthy of being in a fancy suite. Surround the tub with candles, sprinkle fake shamrocks in the water, use a green or gold sparkly bath bomb, and set your bong and favorite weed within arm’s reach.
