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 a bar crawl to imbibe as many green beers as humanly possible.
It also includes going on the internet and having your social media feeds flooded with festive memes that basically are only relevant for one day and one day only. If you love memes or just St. Patrick's Day in general, take a gander at the assortment we've gathered below. These memes might not help you sober up, but they will give you a good chuckle!

The real Trekkies know.
Having Captain Picard order a “Beer, Guinness, chilled” from the ship’s replicator would have changed the whole tone of the show.

But if the beer is green, does that mean it's healthier?
