Leprechaun costumes and green drinks: our Saint Patrick's Day picks
The feast day of St. Patrick, patron saint of Ireland, has become a day of celebrations all over the world. Irish pubs are hugely popular – also in Switzerland. I’d almost dare to say there's at least one in every large Swiss city. But trying to prove this turned out to be pretty tricky: Firstly, what’s a «large» city in Switzerland? And more so, which pubs are Irish, which English, Scottish, American, Australian, you name it?
Whichever nationality you are, here are a few ideas on how to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year: I’ve decided to put together a selection of St. Patrick’s Day-themed products that will make anyone in any pub or at any home party feel a bit Irish.
It’s all about the costume
How about an Irish morph suit or a leprechaun costume? Nothing's too extravagant for 17 March!
Love for detail
A bit more subtle, but no less suitable: these accessories will also make sure you look the part.
Rather wouldn’t dress up? You’ll get away with wearing greenish clothing, too.
Ireland is known for the black gold and great whiskey. Fancy a guinness or a drink with green apple syrup?
Get your greens in
Green beer, green cupcakes, green popcorn – everything's green on St. Patricks Day. How to turn anything green:
For your house party
The day before St. Patrick's Day, 16 March, is the last day of the rugby Six Nations Championship. If you’re into rugby, don't miss Italy vs France at 1:30 p.m., Wales vs. Ireland at 3:45 p.m. and England vs. Scotland at 6 p.m. You’re sure to be in for a treat.
