Do you celebrate St Patrick's day?

Since I work in retail I am constantly surrounded by decorations. At times for holidays that I don't think there really needs to be decorations for , but to each their own right? We have a ton of stuff in the store right now for St Patrick's day and it got me wondering how many people actually celebrate or decorate for it? I will probably buy a couple small signs or things to decorate with and there are some cute games and activities that I'll get for the neighbor kid who we watch a couple afternoons a week. Just so he has some stuff down here to play with. We did a small Valentine's day bag for him this week too. Anyway, will you be decorating for the upcoming holiday?

@Plethos I just meant I'm not full-blooded Irish lol. I'm Irish and Native American from my Mom, and Polish from my late Dad.

I never noticed there being St. Patrick's Day stuff. It seems like it goes from Valentine's to Easter.

Do you mean at DT specifically. Because all the stores I've seen and looked at bad at least two eight foot sections of St Patrick's day stuff and then all the Easter stuff in the same section.

When I had kids around all the time I would, for them. But now I find its just about the money and getting people to spend. No I do not. I barely decorate for Christmas as it is.

I used to decorate for it more when my kids were little. We go to my mothers for dinner.

Not really but appreciate the history of the Saint himself. Its not a Saint that is much celebrated here actually more like there is a Saint for every Day of the Week.
