Happy St. Patrick’s Day from EON!
Here are some of our suggestions for bringing out your inner leprechaun and spreading some St. Patrick’s Day cheer around the workplace.
Lots o’ green!
It’s no secret that the traditional way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at the office is to wear green (if you don’t, you might risk getting pinched!) Try wearing a green tie, green suspenders and green pins you can attach. Now is also a great time to finally bring that green purse out of the closet. Also make sure to integrate green in to the office decor! Green shamrock cutouts are always a nice touch as well as things like mini leprechaun hats that can be placed on your employee’s desks.
That peanut butter and jelly sandwich can wait a day, St. Patrick’s day is a great day to try some unique food. Try bringing in some traditional Irish food such as corned beef, bangers and mash, and Irish soda bread. Potatoes are always classic, and you can always make shamrock cookies to be shared around the office! Here is also a great recipe from the food network for green punch. Dress like a small leprechaun, but be sure to bring a big appetite this year.
If you won’t be able to attend a St. Patrick’s Day parade this year, you can always bring a little bit of entertainment right to your office life. Play some folk music on your break and try your hand at Irish Step Dancing. The Dubliners, The Chieftains, and Planxty are great Irish artists you can start with. You can also play some more recognizable artists such as U2 and Van Morrison who have Irish heritage.
May the luck of the Irish be with you!
