    1. I don’t really celebrate, but my cat got into the spirit this year and wore his little leprechaun hat 😀
    2. I don’t party or drink, but I do love a good alcohol-free pina colada.
    3. Spinach
    4. Neutral
    5. First was Alert, the next one was Gregarious. Some parts of each description are accurate.

    1. I don’t really celebrate it. I’m having corned beef for dinner, though… does that count?
    2. My favorite party drink is lime punch..
    3. Avocado!
    4. While I like the idea of having another day off, I don’t think St. Patrick’s day should be a national holiday…
    5. Your Shamrock Says You Are Gregarious. You are charming, witty, and larger than life.

    At times, you can be a bit impatient and inflexible. You don’t like to be distracted.

    You don’t really consider yourself a lucky person. In your view, people create their own luck.

    You are stylish, in a classic sort of way. You are particular about how you like things.

    Fairly accurate, I’d say. lol

    1. Sometimes I wear green.
    2. Non-alcoholic strawberry daiquri
    3. Green beans
    4. I’m in the U.S, doesn’t really matter to me if it’s a national holiday or not.
    5. My shamrock said I am alert, I’d say it’s mostly accurate.

    1. I don’t celebrate much… I’ll wear green, if I have any clean. Next year, when I’m of age, I’ll be having myself some green beer.

    2. Non-alcoholic: Shirley temples. Alcoholic: Mike’s Hard Lemonades. Don’t judge me!

    3. Broccoli, lime popsicles…

    4. It’s not a national holiday?! Oh, you mean a day off work and school. I don’t know… I think we’d end up with a lot more drunken accidents, so maybe not.

    5. My shamrock says I’m loving!

    “You are balanced, nurturing, and sympathetic. You understand people and love to help them.

    At times, you get too involved with what’s going on in other people’s lives. It’s hard to remove yourself.

    You consider yourself a lucky person. Luck always seems to be on your side.

    You are stylish, in a classic sort of way. You are particular about how you like things.”

    I think it’s very accurate. I’ve come off better so far than many,and I’m grateful. I don’t always act like it, but I’m very compassionate and empathetic. And as an artist, I am particular… :3

    1.How do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, if at all?
    This year, not at all. My husband is out of state and I have to work, so sadly I’ll have to pass.
    2.What’s your favorite party drink – either alcoholic or non-alcoholic?
    White Russians! Not very Irish, but delicious!!
    3.What’s your favorite green food?
    Woodruff sherbert!
    4.Some people want St. Patrick’s Day to be a national holiday in the United States. Do you think that St. Patrick’s Day should be a national holiday in your country?
    Nope, absolutely not. That’s like saying Christmas should no longer be just for Christians!
    5.Take The Shamrock Personality Test – – What do you get? Is it accurate?
    Very much so! It actually describes me perfectly.

    1. How do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, if at all?
    – My family makes an Irish dinner. I also love listening to Irish songs, and wearing green, which has always been my favorite color.
    2. What’s your favorite party drink – either alcoholic or non-alcoholic?
    – I love either homemade peach tea, or healthy watermelon slushies.
    3. What’s your favorite green food?
    – I haven’t met a vegetable I didn’t enjoy, especially those that are green, but I also have a huge sweet tooth, so I’d have to say above all the wonderful veggies out there, Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream tops my “green food” list.
    4. Some people want St. Patrick’s Day to be a national holiday in the United States. Do you think that St. Patrick’s Day should be a national holiday in your country?
    – I think it’s a great day to celebrate the Irish and Ireland, and to embrace their traditions; however, I do not feel it should be considered a national holiday.
    5. Take The Shamrock Personality Test – – What do you get? Is it accurate?
    – “Your Shamrock Says You Are Loving…” – I feel is it fairly accurate, as it addresses my personality as being balanced, nurturing and sympathetic, which are traits I strive to exhibit each and every day.

    1. This year I am going to be studying for finals 🙁 But I most likely will break into the beer at some point.
    2. Vodka martinis
    3. Lettuce
    4. I don’t see why it should. People in America only use St. Patrick’s Day as an excuse to get drunk and wear green; in Ireland it is celebrated so differently. Also most people in America don’t even understand why St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday to begin with.

    Pretty true, though I do have lots of luck in certain areas.

    1. Usually I stay home. If I have friends around I will hang out with them though they often prefer big parties and I like low key get togethers. St. Patrick’s Day was a bigger deal when I was a kid and still taking Irish Step Dancing.
    2. Champagne.
    3. kiwi
    4. yes. my highschool gave it off anyways because so many people skipped to attend the parade! Or were in it because of Irish Dancing.
    5.Your Shamrock says she is Gregarious. haha I’m really not. there is some truth to the description but I am definitely not gregarious or larger than life. The last sentence is accurate.

    How do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, if at all? I make cabbage and corned beef.
    What’s your favorite party drink – either alcoholic or non-alcoholic? It’s not so Irish I guess, but Tequila.
    What’s your favorite green food? Kiwi
    Some people want St. Patrick’s Day to be a national holiday in the United States. Do you think that St. Patrick’s Day should be a national holiday in your country? IDK
    Take The Shamrock Personality Test – – What do you get? Is it accurate? I’m Alert. Logical, traditional -I suppose but I don’t believe thinking creatively is a challenge.
