St. Patrick's Day is Wednesday, March 17. As much fun as it is to celebrate the holiday by going to an Irish pub and pinching your friends who aren't wearing green, that's not exactly a safe socially distanced activity. Instead, consider grabbing a homemade green beer and a bowl of Lucky Charms (because they're festive ​and​ delicious) and take a virtual field trip to Ireland in celebration of St. Patrick's Day.
