Memes… we love ’em. You know what else we love? St. Patrick’s Day. And we’re not even Irish, but at this point, it doesn’t seem to matter. There are 3 reasons why St. Patrick’s Day is one of our favorite holidays: 1. we get to wear green (and being festive is fun!) 2. corned beef and cabbage, hello! and 3. how awesome (read: ridiculous) it is to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on a college campus.
If you’ve never experienced the insanity that is thousands of college students wearing green and knocking back Irish car bombs (well, they probably wish they were doing Irish car bombs but really they’re just chugging Keystone Lights and pretending it’s something more festive) basically, things tend to get a little out of hand. And we’re going to go out on a limb here and say that when it’s St. Patrick’s Day in college, it’s no longer an Irish heritage thing – it’s an “excuse to get drunk” thing that students take very seriously. Not to mention, St. Patrick’s Day shenanigans are often made worse by the fact that it always seems to fall on one of the first nice-weather days of the spring semester.
So in honor of this glorious green holiday, we made 8 memes to describe what St. Patrick’s Day is really like for college students! It makes sense, right? We love memes, we love St. Paddy’s Day, so why not celebrate with St. Patrick’s Day memes? Check ’em out below!
