1 - ST. PATRICK'S DAY - 36.5/40
On this glorious day when everyone is Irish, the only food you need is whatever they serve at the bar, and beer. Healthy no, tasty yes.
Colour Scheme: ****
Green, green and more green. The Wizard of Oz had it right when he called it the Emerald City.
Other than the fact we're all bestowed with the grace of the Irish and the spirit of leprechauns, gifts are the only category in which this holiday sucks.
You're too drunk to hear any music, but the sound of your own voice improves with beer, making you feel as though you need to start a band. Hard on the ears for sober people? Too bad for them - good for you.
Time of year: ****
Mar. 17 is the perfect break between Reading Week and the end of exams. I think this day needs to be declared a national holiday.
There is no preparation needed, other than making sure you're up for the challenge of drinking beer for at least 12 hours non-stop.
Friends, foes and fairies - everything is better when you're all sharing in the tasty nectar of the beer gods.
Drink Rating / Chances for Sex / Getting Arrested: **********
Off the chart in all three categories - the over consumption of alcohol creates beer goggles and lends to rowdy ruckus. St. Patty sure knows how to throw one helluva party.
