st-patricks-dayFrom leprechaun traps to week-long stays in Ireland, there are as many ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day as there are moms who love to travel. During out March 14 Twitter party, we got a jump on celebrating St. Patrick’s Day and shared tips, ideas and plans for leprechaun traps.

How Irish are you on St. Patrick’s Day?

@BtrVacationRent: Irish soda bread, spicy corned beef, cabbage, spuds, carrots, Irish music

@thisenvy: I wear green out of US tradition and to let people know I AM Irish…I have some green and white striped knee socks

@CindyRichards: Usually Irish enough to drink green beer. Lots of green beer. But not Guiness. I’m not quite that Irish.


Where have you traveled for St. Patrick’s Day?

@BtrVacationRent: Didn’t need to go anywhere having lived near Boston & Chicago

@kimorlando: I will travel right after St. Pat’s to West Palm

Where would you like to travel for St. Patrick’s Day?

@thisenvy: Who wouldn’t want to visit Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day at least once? That would be amazing.

@Unkatchable73: I’d actually like to check out Boston or Chicago for St. Patty’s Day.

@BtrVacationRent: Absolutely nowhere- San Diego is gorgeous and I’m pooped.


What’s your favorite St. Patrick’s Day food?

@CindyRichards: That’s easy. Just had it at MILs: mmmm…corned beef, cabbage and potatoes

@StillCharmed: Potato Rolls

@Mom4Always: Spicy corn beef and spuds.


What’s the best way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?

@AidensCross: Run around pinching everyone!


What is the kid-friendliest way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?

@ChaoticKarma23: Watch kid-friendly movies with an Irish theme (Luck of the Irish is a good one)

@Mom4Always: Whole family wears green and eats Irish food.

@twokidsandamap: Rainbow cupcakes, wear green, read books about St. Patrick’s Day
