St. Patrick's Day is a holiday for Irish people -- and people who just like having an excuse to drink -- to enjoy a joyous, beer-filled day. But it's also a drinking event that separates the pros from the amateurs.
The pros know how to approach the day as if it's the big game. The amateurs are the ones who will be calling in sick the next day.
So, for you St. Patrick's Day amateurs, here are some tips to help you prepare for the Super Bowl of drinking ...
If you're going to be meeting up with friends to begin your drink-fest, do not starting drinking beforehand.
It's important that you add some solid food to your liquid diet during the day.
Take a multivitamin. Alcohol depletes your body of B complex vitamins and vitamin C, so a vitamin ought to help reduce the severity of your hangover.
Pace yourself and try to stick to beer. Don't mix beer and liquor. And try to drink some water along the way as well?
In recent years, St. Patrick's Day parties have gotten rowdier and rowdier -- but it doesn't have to be that way. In fact, you and your spouse can take the holiday back from the hooligans and celebrate it quietly and romantically.
According to HitchedMag.com, here are a few ways to romantically celebrate St. Patty's Day: (I have done my research)
Picnic -- Weather permitting, plan a romantic picnic outdoors. Pack a basket with your favorite green goodies. Green napkins, utensils and cups. You can even add a little green food coloring to a bottle of your favorite champagne. Spell It Out -- Write love notes using a pen with green ink. Lucky Lingerie -- On your way home from work, pick up some sexy green lingerie. Cook Together -- While Irish foods like potatoes, sausages and bacon aren't necessarily sexy, it is sexy to share the kitchen with your spouse while you cook together.

Billy claims the fact that he is gay has kept him from signing a major record deal. If that's true, that is sad and...
