For St Patrick's Day dinner I made green eggs (omlettes) and ham (eek!), and green buttered toast, and green cottage cheese. My hands are all green from the blue and yellow food coloring I used. I let the kids drink cherry 7-UP out of frozen beer steins. The meal looked completely and utterly nauseating. The kids completely and utterly went for it. They were so stuffed they didn't even make it to the mint chocolate chip ice cream.
Mike and I, however, celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary with grilled rib-eye. No equality in our household.
Our new Scottish neighbor noted that Thomas and I were both wearing green, and when I said it was for St Patrick's Day he said "Well, I'll have to go dig me up a Guinness, then."
The Scots are so practical.
