Hi there, ladies and gents! Do you see a little green holiday peeking out from the corner? It’s St Patricks Day, baby! And we all know what it is all about.
St Patrick's is especially indulged in because it’s a chance to take a break from the solemnity of the Lenten season and throw your head back in laughter. Now, what can make you laugh so hard? A good ole drink, of course! But what about someSt Patricks Day memes?
Contrary to what you may have grown up believing, the Irish celebration wasn’t about wearing green and drinking in the beginning. Heck, it had a much more profound symbolism, and we’ll tell you just a bit about it before we begin to dish out the funny St Patricks Day memes we have for y’all.
St Patricks Day, usually celebrated on the 17th of March, started in Ireland as a celebration of St Patrick after he died. He is one of Ireland's patron saints because he took Christianity to them. Before the immigrant Irish in America introduced the holiday to Americans, it was already a feast as far back as the fifth century.
But the first American celebration was held in 1737 in Boston and another in 1762 in New York City by Irish soldiers who missed home. Many groups began holding their celebrations ‘til 1848, when they all gathered to form the St. Patrick's Day parade you know now.
Americans have infused their take into the celebration, including things like the leprechaun. The hallmarks of the celebration today are the parades, excessive drinking and wearing the good ‘ol green.
There are many reasons why green is the official color for St Patrick's Day. Some Irishmen say it is a symbol of their nationality. As you know, the Irish flag is green, white and orange. Some others say it’s because Ireland is famed for its lush green vegetation, which earned it the name Emerald Isle. Others say it’s the only thing that wards off leprechauns. This is the part kids would probably enjoy.
Americans have even created a tradition from it and say, “wear green or get pinched”. Other things like dyeing the Chicago river green are also part of the celebrations.
Anyhoo, let’s dive right into the 10 St. Patrick's Day memes we have curated for you. Drink and laugh heartily.
If there’s ever any day on which it’s unofficially legal to drink ‘til your alter ego shows up, it’s on St. Patrick's Day. Since it’s a day everyone pretends to be Irish; you can test your mettle in drinking. Who knows, the part of your Irish ancestry might take over like the guy in this meme, and you’ll babble on in an impeccable Irish accent all day, all night. Want to try it? Here’s a shirt that goes with it - Spend your daydrinking like a champion! Happy paddy’s day to ya.
Here’s another hilarious one for the “green day”. Going back to the basics, are you? When words weren’t complicated with idiomatic expressions and whatnot. How could the whiskey have been on her? Well, only someone as dated as the origin of St Patrick's Day would be that clueless. Nice one there.
How about thisCall Me Old Fashioned shirt for this particular meme? You could hit the bar afterwards and tell the joke over and over to a bunch of different drunk people. Cheers!
Hey, everyone knows that whiskey is proof that you have the stuff of champs in you. Little wonder this funny St Patricks Day meme refers to someone who can’t hold their liquor and has to take something fruity instead.

This one is particularly hilarious. Indeed, not all heroes wear capes, and this fellow should be celebrated on St Patrick's Day. The dude legit focused on hisWhiskey Business so much, and for Lord knows how long, that his lady was packing up her stuff to bail, and he didn't even notice. Who else is raising a green glass of whiskey to that?
Again, proof that whiskey is not for the faint-hearted because how can you risk losing your partner or even a stupid fight because you’re making some review about scotch? Lol! Somebody help this dude, please?
Suppose this isn’t the truth! Lol. Regardless of how old you’re turning, a true Irish (since everyone wants to be Irish on March 17th) never refuses a drinking date.
