There are two kinds of people in this world: those who love celebrating St. Patrick’s Day and those who just can’t deal with the crowds. Either way, you’re asking when is St. Patrick’s Day 2018 to plan your day accordingly.
It has nothing to do with your love of the Irish. Maybe you just don’t like crowds and drunken people; you’d rather celebrate at home by enjoying a smooth Guinness and watching the St. Patrick’s Day parade from a safe distance (as in, on your TV screen). Or maybe you really want to be there, front row, decked out in every shade of green you can possibly find. We have you covered, no matter your preference.
So, when is St. Patrick’s Day 2018? What day is St. Patrick Day 2018?
You might have noticed that some cities or city boroughs — like Staten Island — held St. Patrick’s Day parades and celebrations this past weekend, which made you wonder: when is St. Patrick’s Day 2018 anyway? Don’t worry, you didn’t miss it.
St. Patrick’s Day 2018 falls on March 17, so you have plenty of time to prepare. But get ready for even better news, especially for those of you who like to go enjoy a pint (or more) at your local Irish pub. March 17 is a Saturday, so you can celebrate the Emerald Isle to your heart’s content without worrying about work in the morning. (After all, it is the 4th most popular drinking day of the year.)
Major St. Patrick’s Day parades will largely fall on over this same weekend, March 17 or 18, including those in New York City and Boston. Philadelphia will hold their parade the prior weekend.
Brace yourself (or, we suppose, amp yourself up more) for celebrations unlike any you’ve seen in recent years. St. Patrick’s Day 2018 is not only the first time the holiday has fallen on a Saturday since 2012 but also solidly in the midst of March Madness. Basketball fans, you know what that means: Even if your team loses in the tournament, you can always drown your sorrows in some green beer.
