Chicago River dyed green on St. Patrick's DayIn Chicago, the river (along with the beer in almost every bar) gets dyed green in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, but Chicago is just one city that goes all out to celebrate this traditional Irish holiday.

Join us at 9 pm ET March 14 when we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day during our weekly #TMOM Monday Twitter Party.

How do you celebrate this traditional holiday? What do you do with the kids once the green beer starts to flow? (Ironically, St. Patrick’s Day has traditionally been a religious holiday in Ireland and up until the 1970s, Irish laws mandated that pubs be closed on March 17, according to Today, Ireland uses St. Patrick’s Day to promote tourism and the bars are open.)

Pour yourself a pint and join us on Twitter on March 14 to share your St. Patrick’s Day stories.

Wondering what the heck is a Twitter party and how TMOM Monday works? We can help.
