The EtsyBloggers Blog Carnival for February 28th is brought to you by the color green, the letter P, and the number 8.
I love Holidays. Have I ever mentioned that? You probably knew I was a Christmas Nut, but my madcap ways are not just limited to the well-known, widely celebrated holidays. While St. Patty’s Day is widely celebrated, its still a bit underrated.
We don’t normally “go out” for St. Patty’s Day – I’d love to, but there are WAY too many people (read: drunk people) to tolerate, and I’m not good at that! J I’d like to go to a smallish establishment, just to participate in the antics, but don’t know if I will this year. We shall see.
As for how I celebrate…BAKED GOODS AND CRAFTS!!! These are two of my favorite ways to commemorate any holiday J I’ll admit I tend to focus more on the baked goods than I do the crafts, but I’d like to add to my decoration collections – especially at work. I’ve quite a reputation for being the Holiday Queen, so I can’t disappoint my fans 🙂 I usually bake cupcakes or cookies – I think this year I’m going with cupcakes.
And of course, I wear the traditional colors of St. Patrick’s Day – Green, White, and Orange. Target has some really cute accessories (barrettes, bows, hats, headbands, etc) in their $1.00 section, so I might have to check that out again. And I usually find some way to wear my Chicago Blackhawks St. Patrick’s Day t-shirt, even if it means wearing it under another shirt since we have to adhere to the dress code at work. 🙂
My least favorite thing about the holiday? Those who get their panties in a twist over pinching those who aren’t sporting visible green attire or accessories. Some people get downright mean about it! Pinch me…go ahead and see what happens!!
