The month of March marks the luck of the Irish. Whether you are Irish or not, this day is the only day of the year where you can deck yourself head to toe in the color green. Although this is a cultural and religious holiday for some co-eds, others may be attending a local party in their college town or watching a parade in a major city. Whatever your plans may be this upcoming St. Patty’s Day, be sure to handle it with intelligence and class and follow CL’s guide to a safe St. Patrick’s Day!
No matter where your plans may bring you on this holiday, be sure to know your surroundings well. If you are traveling to a big city or parade, look up the location before you arrive. If you are staying local, be sure to organize a designated driver for you and your friends to avoid being stuck at a party or event. St. Patrick’s Day is known as a “drinking holiday” so it is always a great idea to have a phone number for a local cab company stored in your cell incase you need a last minute ride.
Another way to stay safe on Saint Patrick’s Day, and every other day of the year, is to travel with a group. No matter where you are celebrating this holiday, it is important to stay with at least two or three people to avoid getting lost, or putting yourself in danger. This is very important when you are spending the day and night in a larger city. The cities get very crowded and overwhelming on St. Patrick’s Day, so it’s easy to get separated from your friends. Be sure to stay aware of who is around you, and you won’t have a problem.
This simple CL safety guide is your key to a successful Saint Patrick’s Day. A major component of safety is being aware of your surroundings and surrounding yourself with friends. Can you honestly think of a better way then to spend this green holiday then surrounded by your best friends?
