St. Patrick's Day is a spectacular holiday because it is totally low key. You wear some green, drink some beer, pinch a few people, and maybe claim you're Irish in order to kiss inappropriate people. If you really want to step things up, you maybe paint your nails a minty color or throw on some glittery green sunglasses. In general, it is all good.
Unfortunately, we live in an age of evil overachievers out to make the rest of us look/feel bad. Just look at how people with too much time on their hands (or maybe not enough vodka?) are trying to turn St. Patrick's Day into the kind of holiday that requires effort:
Spicedblog.com seems to think I want to spend my time making green tortilla chips. NO.
Craftionary.net lists this under (I kid you not) "Quick and Easy Last Minute St. Patrick's Day Crafts." Let me break this down for you: If you are building any kind of tree?? You are doing St. Patrick's Day wrong.
Lemontreedwelling.com teaches you how to make this wreath. This is not a wreath holiday, people! Just say NO and put away the foam loop. Step away from the ribbon.
I can't even deal with continuing to scroll through Pinterest looking at all of this, so let me just break it down and make it easy. If it involves a glue gun or turning on your stove, it is not appropriate for this holiday.
I have zero idea who these people are, but they are doing it right.
