St. Patrick’s Day: 10 Ways to Celebrate After Your Divorce or Split

St. Patrick’s Day is incomplete without the Shamrock Shake from McDonald’s! 

Celebrating anything after you have been through a traumatic event is close to impossible. If that event is a split from a long-term partner, you can feel lost even if one of your favorite holidays is right around the corner. To some extent, St. Patrick’s Day symbolizes the celebration of new beginnings. How can you make this year’s St. Patrick’s Day a memorable one?

Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

If you do not feel like celebrating St. Patrick’s Day after your split, we recommend doing a few of these activities below to have a memorable time with your friends, family, or kids. Or, if you feel like going green all the way this St. Patrick’s Day, we also have some tips to go all out!  

1.  Costume Contest

It can be a great way to spend time with your kids. You can help them pick out great costume ideas and attend a parade with their friends after the contest. If you do not have kids, you can organize a costume contest for a party and invite all your friends.

2.  Bingo

This is purely a family fun activity for St. Patrick’s Day to celebrate after your split. You can enjoy a round of bingo with your family to celebrate the holiday. You can find custom St. Patrick’s Day bingo with various symbols associated with it. The game can be a great way to spend time with your family instead of spending it alone.

3.  Shamrock Shake

St. Patrick’s Day is incomplete without the Shamrock Shake from McDonald’s. Hal Rosen, the owner of McDonald’s, invented the mint-flavored drink in 1967 to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Since then, Shamrock Shake has been more or less a must for this holiday!

4.  Leprechaun Traps

If you have kids at your home, having a festive St. Patrick’s Day is best to celebrate after your split. They have been through a lot with your separation, so you can have them prepare leprechaun traps for their nightly visits and enjoy some time free from stress and heartache.

5.  Green Vegetables

Assuming you have children, you can make a green vegetable for every night’s dinner leading up to St. Patrick’s Day to have your kids eat something healthy. You can say that leprechauns like green vegetables such as broccoli, spinach, cucumbers, peas, etc. They can enjoy the festive greens and gain a habit of eating more vegetables. It’s a win-win for you!

…having a scavenger hunt is another fun family activity for St. Patrick’s Day!  

6.  Scavenger Hunt

Having a scavenger hunt is another fun family activity for St. Patrick’s Day! Family is significant when you are to celebrating a holiday after your split. They won’t judge you if you feel like being happy after a time of sadness, so feel free to organize a scavenger hunt with your family and look for the pot of gold!

7.  Celebrate Traditionally

The Parade and modern celebrations are not how St. Patrick’s Day was initially celebrated. Although they are fun to attend, it can be too much for someone who has recently been through emotional trauma. So, why not celebrate the holiday by honoring the Irish culture and history? You can celebrate the day by attending a church commemorating the feast day.

8.  Family Brunch

If you do not feel like going out this St. Patrick’s Day for the Parade or feast, you can organize a brunch for your family to celebrate. Even if the holiday is a weekday, you can have a simple meal at home with some party decorations.

9.  Irish Soda Bread

You can prepare Irish soda bread to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Baking is also a great way of de-stress yourself. If you have been worrying about your divorce or split, you can take a break from the anxiety by spending some time baking delicious Irish soda bread. It will make your holiday more festive, and you’ll get to enjoy a yummy treat.

10.      Give Back to the Community

December does not have to be the only month to indulge in volunteer work and share gifts. You can use St. Patrick’s Day to celebrate by giving back to the community. You can give your time, money, or whatever you feel someone would need—make sure it warms your heart and brings a smile on someone’s face!

Conclusion

Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day can give you a break from the stress you’ve been under since your split. If you choose to celebrate after your split and enjoy the day, you might feel better than not having celebrated it at all! That’s why we recommend you try some of these suggestions and have a good time. Relax a little and avail this day to bring you one more step closer to feeling happy!
