    Why does everyone try to make a buck off poor auld St. Patrick? In March it seems you can buy almost anything in some shade of green. You don't need a green feather boa to enjoy the day, so save yourself the cash and treat yourself to some good Irish grub instead.

    Consuming green food does not make you Irish! You can eat as many green bagels are you want, but other than entertaining kids, dying food green seems a waste of energy. Why not make your favorite Irish comfort food instead?

    Idiotic t shirts and accessories. There is nothing Irish about some of the merchandise that retails stores sell for St. Patrick’s Day. March 17 doesn’t give you a license to endorse a stereotype and insult a nation.
