As you might have heard, the entire nation of Ireland is distraught over losing their beloved Kilbeggan® Whiskey to America, a land full of yankees. Still, even though the States weren't even states yet when the distillery was founded (1757 -- take that, wine coolers), America does have its positives. For one thing, she's brash enough to reinvent just about anything, from systems of government, to games that sound like you're supposed to play them with your feet but actually involve hands, to the traditions associated with St. Patrick's Day. To see what newfangled notions those irrepressible across-the-ponders are suggesting the world incorporate into its celebration of that glorious holiday, check out Thrillist's story on Six Brand Spanking New St. Patrick's Day Traditions right here. And be on the lookout for that whiskey -- as soon as Ireland gets over her loss, she'll no doubt appreciate a thank-you toast back across that pond.
