How Gen Z Celebrates
St. Patrick’s Day
It’s St. Patrick’s Day, everybody, and you know what that means! Time to head to mass and maybe attend a nice traditional céili with your immediate family before enjoying a delicious lenten meal of fish and veggies and calling it an early night, right? Just kidding, it means it’s time to drink! At least, that’s what it means for a significant chunk of the population, and Gen Z is no different.
As for how St. Patrick’s Day became a popular “drinking holiday” actually has nothing to do with snakes, shamrocks, or stereotypes, but we’ll skip that part because we know you have places to be and too-ras to loo-ra today. Don’t forget to hydrate!
When it comes to why Gen Z considers St. Pat’s a drinking holiday, how they celebrate, and what they’re drinking when they do, though, we can deliver those in less time than it takes to pull a full pint. Ready?
