Time to scramble through your closet looking for something green to wear in honour of St. Patricks Day. But what to do if you find you have nothing green to wear?
You could ask your friends to borrow something to wear, use some food dye or permanent marker to wreak havoc on some poor white article in your closet, or dart over to a thrift store to grab a shirt. If none of these are working, here’s a more daring alternative: body paint in the nude.
Grab some body paint and go wild. Then, as a means to both celebrate the warming weather whilst simultaneously acknowledging that this is in fact Manitoba and the bar for warmer weather is pretty low, do a mad dash in all your green-nudist-mildly-inebriated glory. I’d recommend some sort of undergarments of course, less out of concern for the individual partaking in this particular event as they will be having more pressing problems shortly, but rather to spare the eyes of those unfortunate enough to witness this newfound all-natural tradition.
And who says you have to stop at body paint? Toss some glitter in there, green streamers to attach to your nipples, a cape, a hat, maybe even a mask to cover up your face so your parents don’t end up realizing that studying isn’t the only thing you’re doing at university.
Partake in some of the spirits of the holiday (ex. Whiskey, and more whisky? Some Lucky Charms maybe. Whisky and Lucky Charms smoothie? Who cares, you’re streaking on a religious holiday God holds no power here.) as a means to gain motivation and liquid courage. Grab a friend and make it a group activity. Whatever your decision, don’t forget to wear green this St. Patty’s Day!
