We really don't. Other than remind the kids to wear some green. They always prefer to wear sneaky green so they can pinch someone back!

Thank you to you and your sponsors! No, I don't celebrate St Patty's day.

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

No big celebrating here either for St. Patricks Day. I have a friend who is from Ireland, though...she goes all out and enjoys it thoroughly. Thank you for this chance.

Kim said...

I don't really do anything for St. Patrick's Day except making sure my children wear something green so they don't get pinched at school.

Adele said...

Corned beef! Why is this the only time we eat it? Thanks for the chance.

Southern Gal said...

No traditions for St. Patrick's Day. My children know the story and will wear green so they won't be pinched, but that's about it.
I always forgot to wear green when I was in school and paid dearly for it. Ouch.

dwylie said...

Once a year I make corned beef, soda bread and we have creme de menthe cake for dessert.

deb said...

We usually make corned beef and cabbage, and try to wear something green.

tpott said...

We don't have any traditions here but I do love a good eye round corned beef. Thank you and your sponsors for such generous giveaways! ;-> Toni Anne

Lauren Deel said...

No traditions for me. Well, I am Irish, so maybe... I ask my husband to kiss me more on that day? ;)
These are some great giveaways! Thanks so much for the chance to win!

Mountain Home Quilts said...

I do not as an adult but when I was a child we always had corned beef, cabbage, and carrots for the day!

I'll wear my green shirt & shop for some green fabric!

Dee said...

We celebrate two birthdays for St. Paddy'ys Day! Our niece turns 13 this year, and my childhood friend, Cindi, spends this first birthday Home. Cindi died right before Thanksgiving last year and leaves two small daughters behind. This is a bittersweet day for me. But I will celebrate Life on this holiday and rejoice in knowing these two beautiful souls!

Thanks for hosting!

I live in Norway, and we have no tradition of St. Patrick's Day. But I love a nice giveaway. Thank you!

Lorie Dale said...

Yes I will have my kids over for corned beef and green food. I also made a new St Pattis day table runner this year. I love decorating for all holidays.

Dolores said...

Dressing up in something green on St. Patrick's Day. Thank you for a great giveaway.

We always wear at least one item of green!!

We had not really done much on St Patricks Day. I do try to wear a little green to let others know that I want to encourage their fun.

DebraKay Neiman said...

We always wear something green. One year I saw a parade in Gulf Port, Mississippi which reminded me of Mardi Gras. The riders on the floats threw beads, cabbages, plastic cigars etc. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

Оксана said...

I live in Russia, and we have no tradition of St. Patrick's Day. But I know that there is a national holiday. Thank you!

Melia Mae Quilting said...

My husband is irish, so he likes to make the cornbeef and hash stuff. I don't care for it and my girls and I don't eat, but we stand the smell while he makes it for himself and his mom:) The girls and I eat pizza, but I try to make something green for the meal like jello, pudding, or a mint ice cream desert:)

amber potter said...

We don't really do anything special for St. Patrick's Day, except wear a little green somewhere :)

Laura said...

We typically make some festive green or Irish-ish food or dessert, but not always the same thing year to year. It's not quite a tradition, but I think I might start trying to do something special for the kids as they grow up.

Thanks for the chance!

giddy99 said...

No traditions, aside from wearing green!

CaroleM said...

Pre-kids we used to have a St. Paddy's day party every year, but I now admit it sounds like too much work.

Jean Burke said...

Thanks for the chances. We always wear green, bake scones, make our own Irish potato candies and try to have a Guinness in there somewhere! Happy St. Patrick's Day to all! Slainte!

Kristal said...

We really don't. Other than remind the kids to wear some green. They always prefer to wear sneaky green so they can pinch someone back!

needle and nest said...

No big celebrating here, though I do wear green. Thanks for the great giveaways!

Paula @ Sewy Stuff said...

Oh my! What FANTASTIC prizes!!

I don't celebrate the holiday, though I'm not opposed to an Irish Coffee any day of the year. :-)

Aureas Kitchen said...

Thanks for this giveaway!!!

No traditions here, but maybe go have a beer ;)

Tiffany said...

Corned beef and cabbage, for sure. Also, this year I might make a craft with the kiddo - and give to friends. Super cute ideas all over the internet :)
Thanks for the chance!

Allison said...

for St. Patrick's Day, we watch a Veggietales short about St. Patrick which is part of their Sumo of the Opera video - it is a silly way for the kids to learn a bit about St. Patrick. I also bake Irish Soda Bread :) thanks for the fun giveaway!

Rebecca said...

corn beef and cabbage and boiled potatoes and a shot of whiskey With good friends.

Daytona Damsel said...

No traditions. I did not wear green as a child or young adult because I look terrible in green. LOL Besides I always believed only the Irish should wear green on St Patty's Day. Thanks for the give aways.

SandyQuilts said...

Thank you sponsors. We don't celebrate St. Patty's now that our children are grown and gone. But when they were little we did everything including green milk. he he he

Nancy said...

We don't have any St Patrick's Day traditions, in fact I'm lucky if I actually wear green! But there are a few things that I wish I did- like make Irish Soda bread, and I've never even tried corn beef and cabbage. Maybe this year!

Debbie said...

sad to say ~ no traditions :( we are so boring!
Thanks for great giveaways!

Patrica said...

Being half Irish on my mother's side St. Patrick's Day is my holiday and we go all out with an Irish American feast. They don't do corned beef and cabbage in Ireland you know. We love Cole Cannon around here any time of year. Thanks for the chance at the give away.

Needled Mom said...

Absolutely....the traditional dinner with all the trimmings. I even make fudge shaped into mini potatoes for dessert.

Jowyn Jenson said...

I don't currently have any St. Patrick's Day celebrations in mind. But need to check in with my Irish friend... Who knows? Thanks for this giveaway.

Jodi Connors (Mountain Gurl Quilts) said...

Wow thanks for the fabulous giveaways...YES we do have traditions, since I married into an Irish family, (hence the last name Connors) Every year we do corned beef and cabbage and/or sauerkraut and sausage, and always my husband's favorite Lemon and vanilla curd cake (Irish cheesecake)yummy!

babiesdoc said...

no traditions for st pats day
we are not irish, I have always wanted to drink green beer but, I don't really like beer.

as an aside i LOVE the thread from connecting threads and often buy 10 spools at a time. I works as well as the really $$$threads and is just $2.79
works great on a long arm too.

MotherTheresa...no, not the saint said...

We always have a special meal and play some Irish music that I was raised with. My favorite treat to have is Irish coffee. Thanks for the chance. Theresa E.

We don't celebrate it - it doesn't seem to feature much where I am! Thanks for the great giveaways.

Stacey said...

We don't really have any traditions other than wearing green.....of course!!! I do make green milk for the kids.

Laurel09 said...

I don't really have St. Patrick's Day traditions, but my family owns a winery and we die one of our white wines green for the day, which is pretty fun!

Four dogs and one quilter said...

Corned beef and cabbage and wearing a bit of the green are my traditions.

Kathy S. said...

The only St. Patrick's Day tradition that we do is that my son and I will wear green t-shirts. That's about it. Thanks for the chances to win the awesome giveaways!

Rebecca said...

No traditions. Just wear green, and remember to call my sister for her birthday.

amy5rose said...

i love the black and white neutrals from Connecting Threads! I just recently started collecting fabrics for a black and white quilt and definitely need some of those! :)

Alison said...

Nope, no St. Patrick's Day traditions for me.

Tracy said...

None for me, but I try to wear green and maybe eat corned beef. ;-)

Melanie said...

Only green beer around here!

wintunancy said...

If our local Grange has a corned beef and cabbage dinner we sometimes go to that, but other than that it's not something we make a big deal of.

Jill said...

I put rainbow streamers all over the house with little treasures at the end for the kids to find. We dye our milk green as well. I have a kindergartener this year and will be making a leprechaun trap this week.

Ella said...

Heh. It's the anniversary of my gall bladder removal surgery. I eat a little more gratefully and mindfully that day, but not because of St. Patrick's...and no traditional St Patrick's day foods.

Lisa said...

I always wear green! But I always made my kids something green for breakfast, green pancakes, green biscuits, green koolaid... Got to make life fun!

JoyceLM said...

We don't have any St. Pat's Day traditions, though if The Quiet Man is on TV, I try to watch it. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

Lee Ann L. said...

No plans. We rarely do anything for St Pats day. Thank you for a chance to win!

JLVerde said...

No St. Pat's traditions. Though I try to wear some green (if I remember).

HeatherK @ A Reformed Heath'n said...

I have 2 ginger babies, so St. Patrick's day is definitely recognized in our home. Of course, we all wear green, my son likes to put on his Irish accent for the day (which isn't too bad) and I usually cook up some green treats. Another thing we sometimes do is make Leprechan Traps from old boxes and recycled things. We don't go all-out, but we have fun.

Karen said...

Sorry to be Debbie Downer, but I don't have any St Patrick's day traditions, unless you count keeping the cats inside. It's usually just another day for me.

Nicole Hannah said...

If I remember in time, I make a chocolate guinness cake. I wish I remembered more often than I do, as it's a great cake!

Lin Marsh said...

Being of German descent, we don't do anything to celebrate St Patrick's Day. Occasionally wear green if I remember.
Such exciting prizes!

Grandma Ruthie said...

Honestly I would be thrilled to win any of the one's mentioned in your blog... if I had to pick one it would be the Connecting Threads bundle. I already use their thread (which is fantastic!) but would love to try their fabric. Thanks for the chance to win.

Lucy @ Charm About You said...

Of course! We decorate the house, I make soda bread and we go to the Irish parade!

Michele T said...

I try to remember to wear something green, but otherwise, I don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

Lynda said...

when the children were little, we made a big deal out of st pattys day, but now that they are grown, not so much - my husband was Icelandic and I am French so not much irish blood flowing here

Shanners said...

Every year for St. Patrick's day I have a little party, and I make my corned beef and a potato cabbage bake. And of course some Guinness cupcakes with baileys frosting. I love St. Patrick's day. So much fun. Thanks for the chance to win.

Cynthia Brunz Designs said...

No St Patty's traditions. But I have learned to at least wear green! Thanks for the chance at all those great prizes.

Jan said...

We use to have corn beef and cabbage every St. Patricks' Day. Then, many years ago I got one of "those" phone calls while prepping our dinner. My husband was in the hospital, and in bad shape. Everything worked out fine, but I haven't cooked Corn Beef and Cabbage, since then.

Julie in WA said...

With a Dutch heritage and growing up in a Dutch community, I never knew about St. Patricks Day until my daughter befriended a girl who loves St. Patricks Day! So, no, there is no celebration in my life but it always surprises me how big of a holiday it really is!

Gnomemade said...

Not much of a St. Patrick's girl myself. My mother always made corned beef and cabbage, so there may be a corned beef sandwich that day!

Lesley said...

Thank you for sharing such great giveaways. Many years ago, we did lots of celebrating, including green beer, but now it is just a matter of enjoying seeing the Quilty projects people make!

Pieces of Cotton said...

No, we don't do anything for St. Patrick's day. I've owned a pin that says "kiss me, I'm Irish" for over 30 years and I think every year I'll remember to use it on St. Patrick's day and I never do...

quasiquilter said...

No traditions for us. Thanks for the giveaway opportunities!

Patricia said...

No traditions for the day at all.

thriftstorecrafter.com said...

No traditions for me, but I wouldn't say no to a green beer. thriftstorecrafter@yahoo.com

Lisa Marie said...

We don't really do anything for St Patrick's Day. We do hear stories of celebrations from our son who lives in New Orleans and always finds parades and parties to celebrate the holiday. Well, in New Orleans, almost any holiday has that.

Shauna said...

In my younger days St Patty's day was always a good excuse to party, but being old and boring, I prefer staying in away from the crowds. So no real traditions for me except to wear green. :)

barbara woods said...

Just to wear green. thanks for the chance

Mel_Lind said...

My wedding anniversary is the day after St Patty's, so we don't usually celebrate. :-(

Grandma Helen said...

We don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day. We stay away from "Aggieville" - the business district near the KSU campus - because that's where the students celebrate the day.

Diane said...

Bake some Irish soda bread (double the recipe so I have some to put in the freezer!), make a corned beef & cabbage ... and enjoy! thanks for the chance!

Christine M said...

We don't really do anything to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in our family. Thanks for the lovely giveaways.

Heidi [Banks of Frog Creek] said...

We eat corned beef, but that's about it :)

Shannon said...

Sometimes we wear green, but it's not required!

Jan Baker said...

The only thing I do for St. Paddy's day is to be sure to wear green. This year I picked out a new blouse for work to make sure I am not running around trying to find one.

Teresa Stanulis said...

I usually wear green and play some Irish music, but that's about it!

Aimee said...

No traditions for St. Pat's, though I do try to get a Shamrock Shake from McD's at least a couple times during the month of March

Jane S. said...

We wear green, of course, because kids are mean and will pinch really HARD if you're not wearing it...ask me how I know...I always make corned beef, cabbage, potatoes too. I make that several times during the year but it's extra special on St. Paddy's Day!

Emily C said...

Our tradition is to spend the day with my GMIL, it is her birthday.

Melissa Miller said...

No particular tradition now but during the several years my daughter was a competitive Irish dancer it was a day to take her out of school to put on dance performances around town.

Sharon said...

We have no St. Patrick's tradition . . . except sewing :)

My only tradition is to get a Shamrock Shake from McDonalds. But they changed the recipe last year and it's not as good so need a new one! :)

Laura B said...

My tradition is to 'help' the leprechaun visit my classroom when my students are away and leave a big mess :)

Kathy Davis said...

Have never done anything special for St. Patrick's Day until this year. I have a granddaughter now, so I spent the day putting an appliqued shamrock on a onsie and also made a little skirt. Special days are more special to me now.

No real traditions outside of small gifts for a couple of Irish friends. This year made a few shamrock mug rugs. Great giveaways

OhioLori said...

No celebrating here either...tho sometimes we do have corned beef & cabbage...just isn't a "Tradition" thing. Had an Aunt whose birthday was St. Patrick's Day...and that was reason we always celebrated when I was growing up. :)

Thanks for grrrreat Give-a-Ways!!!

Pickles Quilting said...

On St. Patrick's Day, my husband and I always go to the parade in our town. It is usually pretty interesting...celebrity guest, Irish Elvi (Elvis impersonators), Irish dancers, and much more! It is usually pretty interesting. Thank you for the opportunity to win such wonderful prizes!!!-Brittany

Annelies said...

Yes we celebrate....OUR DAUGHTER'S BIRTHDAY!!! Yes, I gave birth on that fun day. NO ONE ever forgets her special day, and maybe this post will bring me the Luck of the Irish!!! XXX

Laughing Owl said...

Where I come from most people don't even know about this holiday, so no, no traditions here.
Thanks for the giveaway!

GO STARS! said...

I don't celebrate St Patricks Day but I have a funny story. My friend had a St Patty's party one year. She handed me a sheet of Irish jokes. After no one laughed at the first couple she took the sheet back. Apparently a Texas accent ruined the jokes!

Linda Nelson said...

I pretend I'm Irish, put on some Van Morrison, and wear green.

lenelson(at)mail(dot)com

Deanna said...

My red-haired Irish grandmother was born on St Patrick's day. Quite a serious honor. We mostly each corned beef and potatoes and be grateful for the good health that comes from an Irish farmer background.

GranChris said...

No traditions anymore. My kids are gone but when they were home they got green eggs and ham for breakfast and all sorts of crazy food all day.

Shar said...

When my kids were small we died the milk green, had Lucky Charms for breakfast,. There would be green footprints and a little mess left. Then we changed to corn beef and cabbage sandwiches for dinner. My husband and son just loved it.

Thanks for a great giveaway. We don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

Coach Baker said...

St Patricks day is one of my best friends birthdays. So we usually throw a st patricks day/birthday bash and have a lot of fun!

quiltzyx said...

Birthday cake for my sister - I used to always make it green, but she told me to knock it off! lol

And I usually treat myself to a McDonald's Shamrock Shake too. Did you know that originally they were only vanilla shakes with green food coloring? People would swear they were mint, but they weren't (according to my BFF, who was a champion McD's shake maker!).

Liz said...

My mums 80th birthday this Paddy's day. That is all we have ever celebrated.(her birthday).but I think I can remember getting the day off from school to have a Patrick's day athletics carnival.

Constantia Patelodimou said...

Dear Heather and Megan,
I admire your work and I am a great fun of you for years. I live in Athens, Greece and I don't know if I can join your activities, but I would like it very much as I can't find here in Greece all these amazing stuff you giveaway.
We don't celebrate St Pattrik here and it is not a common name.
Thank you for your tutorials and your great ideas.
Constantia

Mary W Quilts said...

I live in Boston where St. Patricks Day is big day for celebrating whether or not your Irish. So wearing green, eating green, or having a green drink is usually in the plans next weekend. Thanks for the giveaway.

Tina Kristoff said...

I don't celebrate ST. Patrick's Day. Several years ago I went to a St. Patrick's Day Parade and as you walked up and down the street people had there homes opened up for you to come in and have a drink and something to eat. It was very interesting.

hennies.pennies said...

I don't go all out for the holiday but I do acknowledge it by wearing a bit of green. I'm always up for a bit of celebration!! Be especially blessed...

Bohemian Mimi said...

We go to the St Patrick's day parade in N Myrtle Beach, SC. It is a sea of green,

Kymberly said...

Thanks to your sponsors for the great giveaways. I love St. Patrick's Day, but sadly don't live near any big celebrations. My husband and I always make an Irish themed supper (usually corned beef and cabbage) and of course proudly wear our green.

Janet Betts said...

I don't celebrate St. Patrick's day except to wear green. Thanks for the great giveaway!

EmileeHope said...

We don't do anything in particular except decorate and then send special wishes to my brother in law b/c it is his birthday!

cpup40 said...

I really don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day. I just make sure my husband and I wear green. We hate to be pinched.

motherontheedge said...

Wow! Love the giveaways, and love St Patty's Day! My classroom is filled with Shamrocks...and I always have the children do something fun - related to the holiday! At home, a good corned beef with some Irish Soda bread for dinner - and I have been known to drop a small splash of green into the beer!!!

Regina said...

We really don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day - we are more the type to celebrate Pi Day on 3/14 - or this year Pi Month... yeah... geeky house!

Karen said...

When my children were small we were visited by a leprechaun. He would turn our milk green, switch the comforters on their beds, and do other little pranks. Now, unfortunately, the children are up much later than the leprechaun so he can never surprise them! We do decorate and wear green and have a nice corn beef and cabbage dinner!

Margaret said...

Thanks to your sponsors for the great prizes. The only tradition I have is I wear my shamrock socks all that week. I have ten pair.

Beth said...

I have a funny leprechaun hat, and every year I take a photo of my grandson wearing it. It is so fun to look at the photos of each year as it gets smaller and smaller on the top of his head!

AWESOME sponsors! I would love to be the lucky winner, I don't generally celebrate St. Patricks Day but if it would make me lucky enough to win this giveaway I would wear green and possibly drink green beer and believe in leprechauns :)

Jody Polen said...

We celebrate the birth of my second grandson who was born on St. Patricks Day in 2011. It also happens to be his father's birthday so there is lots of green in the house!

Mom C said...

My nail lady wears orange, in rebellion against st. Pat.?! Since I'm getting my nails done on the 17th I'll have to ask her to explain why again. Thanks.

Alisa said...

Great sponsors and giveaway!

We don't do anything special for St. Patricks day, but it is my husbands birthday so we always have cake. :-)

Karrie S said...

No, we don't have a tradition for St Patty's day. A few times I went to the bar(s) really early that day in college to drink. But I'm not a drinker anymore :) Thanks for the chance to win!! ksmith8@emich.edu

Steven Turner said...

We don't do anything nowadays - when I was a student we would have a few drinks! Thanks for the giveaway!

We make corned beef and cabbage and Irish soda bread.

Bridget B said...

We do celebrate - eating Irish food and my house is decorated with place mats, an Irish table topper, a lighted shamrock in the window and I even war St Patrick's day socks and a green blouse.
Thanks for the giveaway.

Bethany said...

I just wear some green! I have red hair, but I am just not that into St. Patty's Day!

P Bybee said...

No, I actually don't! I grew up in Indonesia and we don't celebrate St. Patricks day there so I have never grown up with it, hence no tradition.
So what my husband and I likes to do is add green food coloring in cream soda sometimes.

Thanks for the chance to win this wonderful entry.
We celebrate St. Patrick's Day with the celebration on our son's birthday, he was a very cute shamrock forty seven years ago. YIKES

Candy Olson said...

I'm not Irish, but wear green on St. Patrick's Day, and always serve corned beef and cabbage. Traditions are nice to participate in and continue!

Melissa said...

I always make sure to wear green.

phylklos said...

Yes, our ST. Pat's day is a corned beef dinner and all the trimmings at the local Sr. Center Complete with green beer!
I love Connecting Threads fabrics and prices!

My youngest son was born on St Pat's day, so that makes it doubly special since my father's family was Irish. We always include something chocolate for favours and some decorative green hats on his cake.

bubbygigi said...

I try to celebrate the holiday with a green milkshake, mint chocolate chip ice-cream and vanilla syrup. It's a favorite of mine.

One English Teacher said...

wonderful giveaways! The gray connecting threads bundle would go a long way in a quilt I currently have in the works; I saw their new verigated threads the other day and love those as well. I don't have any St. Patty's day traditions.

Jeri Niksich said...

Don't celebrate it much just a couple of decorations I put up for my Granddaughter she says she feels sorry for St. Patricks Day because nobody celebrates it lol.

Patti said...

Green, green, green!And of course my husband wants his corned beef!

becky jeffers said...

Corned beef and cabbage, hot cross buns, and wearing green.

susan718 said...

No-we don't celebrate St Patrick's day, but thank you for the wonderful giveaways!!

dortha said...

I have to make sure I have something green on so that some smarty doesn't pinch me.

Lisa in Port Hope said...

No traditions here, although sometimes I will wear orange to spark a discussion about past religious strife in Ireland.

Kathy H said...

We have always used as many green foods as possible, green homemade bread, green milk, fruits and made green cookies.

Caroline @ Artfully Caroline said...

We do bangers and mash with irish soda bread or Guinness bread… and chocolate coins for the kiddos

Scrapbook-ChickADoodle said...

It's our Granddaughter's birthday so we celebrate her.

Thanks for the opportunity to win.
