St. Patrick’s Day is almost here and we would be remiss if we didn’t tell you a few important tips to keep in mind before heading into the much-anticipated annual celebrations. Whether you’re in St. Julian’s, Valletta or elsewhere, following these tips and keeping the importance of health & safety in mind are essential to allow yourself (and others) enjoy their day. So go out, enjoy, stay safe and follow these tips.
Tip number one: be a sport and put on at least one green item of clothing. You won’t feel like a fish out of water, fit in well and immediately find common ground when heading into the pub or street where you plan on attending the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.
Whatever you do, don’t go out on an empty stomach on St. Patrick’s Day. Grab yourself a big, wholesome, pre-game meal to line your stomach with all the safety it needs. As an added safety measure, secure a solid, mid-event snack to further ensure that the beers don’t get the best of you.
Drink in moderation
The connotations between St. Patrick’s Day and beer-drinking are not something which can be ignored, but that doesn’t mean you should go hard on the beer. Enjoy your time with friends, get a few drinks in but for God’s sake and your own… DRINK RESPONSIBLY.
Charge your phone
On days like St. Patrick’s Day, the last thing you want is to get lost in the crowd with zero percent battery. Whether it’s messaging the squad to see where they’re at, letting family members know that you’re alright or just booking a taxi to get home, make sure you charge your phone beforehand and take a portable charger with you if need be.
Don’t drink and drive
One of the most important things to keep in mind when St. Patrick’s Day activities come around. Whatever you do… DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE. It’s important to understand that not only is driving under the influence a crime, but it could endanger you and those around you. You could potentially be saving lives by booking a cab, so go ahead and opt for that this year.
