Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! #stpatricksday2016

It’s my favorite day of the year!!!! Happy St. Paddy’s everyone!

I live-blogged (that’s a thing right?) throughout the day. Below you’ll find a compilation of random #StPatricksDay facts, videos, infographics, and of course, TUNES, because necessary!

I’ll leave you for the evening with this. I’ve got some imbibing to do:

Sláinte!

Sláinte is the basic form in Irish Gaelic. Variations of this toast include sláinte mhaith “good health” in Irish (mhaith being the lenited form of maith “good”). The basic Scottish Gaelic equivalent is slàinte (mhath) (same meaning) to which the normal response is do dheagh shlàinte “your good health”.
