Celebrating St. Paddy’s Day Early

Briahna Grace, a 13-month-old Savannah native, watches the city’s St. Patrick Day parade today from the lap of her uncle Dylan Grace in Savannah, Ga. The date of the parade was changed because of a quirk in the 2008 calendar that places Monday the 17th during Holy Week. It happens only about once a century. (AP Photo/Stephen Morton)

Question: How do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?

1. Wear green
2. Pinch people who don’t wear green
3. Visit an Irish pub
4. Kiss Irish people
5. Plant potatoes
6. Ignore it altogether
