Skip the Bar and Celebrate St. Patrick's Day With These Memes



St. Patrick's Day started out as a Christian holiday to celebrate the life of St. Patrick and the spreading of Christianity to Ireland. Today, it has evolved into a celebration of all things Irish, including leprechauns, shamrocks, the color green, and St. Patrick himself.

The mainstay of every year's St. Patrick's Day celebration includes wearing green and going on bar crawl to imbibe as many green beers as humanly possible. 

However, with the new coronavirus outbreak, many bars and restaurants are breaking with years of traditional St. Patty's Day events by suspending celebrations and opting to prioritize public health instead.

Luckily, we live in the year 2020 and can still celebrate... remotely! Stores are stocked with plenty of beer, and thanks to the power of the internet, people can connect via video chat with friends to continue to celebrate this beloved Irish holiday.

St. Patrick's Day memes that'll make you laugh.

Festivities are moving online and even the American Celtic punk band Dropkick Murphys, who do an annual St. Patrick's Day concert, will be livestreaming this year's show for free on various platforms.

To get in the spirit of St. Patrick's Day, we rounded up a list of choice St. Patrick's Day memes to infuse your holiday with laughs and provide some feel-good moments for these trying times. Scroll on to get into the mood of the holiday!
