It’s March 17th, and across the globe, the Irish and the Irish-at-heart gather to celebrate Irish culture and the patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick. Yes, it’s Saint Patrick’s Day!

What was once observed as a very secular feast in honor of the saint has over time, evolved into a worldwide festival with parades, drinks, special treats and everything green. This year, we suggest you save yourself a trip to the rowdy local bar or pub and get into the spirit of Saint Patrick’s Day with something a little bit different, and much more refreshing—shaved ice and snow cones.

With the luck of the Irish and these creative shaved ice tricks, you’re sure to make the day even more memorable (and green), no matter if you are hosting a St. Patrick’s Day party or just sharing some holiday cheer.
