Today is Fat Tuesday and the Mardi Gras celebrations are in full swing. I’m sure beads and feathered boas are flying everywhere! Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday marking the beginning of the 40 day season of Lent. Easter Sunday will be here before you know it!
However, between now and Easter we do have a little holiday called St Patrick’s Day, you might have heard of it? I love St Patrick’s Day! Between the parades, the parties and the celebrations it’s one heck of a fun holiday! Bring on the Leprechauns, shamrocks and green beer! St Patrick’s Day is next Thursday, March 17th and whether your Irish or not, head on out and celebrate! Your corner pubs will probably be serving Irish food, playing Irish music and of course serving green beer!
Don’t forget to dress the part this St Patrick’s Day! HalloweenExpress.com has everything you need from your luck of the Irish hats to deluxe Leprechaun costumes. Surprise your friends and show up decked out as a little piece of Irish folklore!
Wow I can’t believe how big Jersey Shore has become! It’s like watching a train wreck, you don’t want to but you just can’t help yourself. MTV really hit the big time with this little reality series about a group of twenty-something year olds living together and partying it up (GTL – gym, tan, laundry) for the summer in Seaside Heights, NJ. Can you believe season one premiered in December 2009 to 1.37 million viewers and season 3 premiered in January 2011 with record ratings of 8.45 million viewers! It’s so popular that the cast of Jersey Shore made Barbara Walter’s “10 Most Fascinating People” list!
Because it’s such a huge hit with high school and religiously watched by college students, it’s no surprise that the stars of Jersey Shore were popular Halloween costumes last year. Snooki was the most popular by far! It’s an easy costume – lots of poof in the hair, lots of bronzer and a short skirt and you’re ready to go! Pauly D was also fun to portray with tons of hair gel and Ed Hardy t-shirt and jeans and you’ve got the look. You couldn’t have made up a better cast of characters for all the college students to dress up as for Halloween.
Season one and three were filmed at the Jersey Shore and season two was filmed in Miami, Florida. But wait, there’s still another season to come with the group heading to Italy for season four. Now that should be interesting! I don’t think we’ve heard the last of Snooki, JWoww, Sammi, Pauly D, the Situation, Ronnie and Vinny!
