39 St. Patrick's Day Captions That'll Make Your Friends Green With Envy

St. Patrick's Day is a big deal in most cities across the United States. There's a lot of clinking beer mugs for the 21 and older crowd, and there are a lot of green treats to go around for everyone. There are huge parades and people who are just in an awesome overall mood. Seas of green can be found wherever you look (otherwise, there's pinching involved). And to document it all, you need the perfect St. Patrick's Day captions for your Instagram feed.

You can grab a quote from Lucky of The Irish, one of the best Disney Channel movies (and worth a viewing every year for March 17), or you can go for something witty. Whatever you decide on, you'll be in the best kind of mood spending the day celebrating with friends and family.

Again, make sure that if you're over 21 and plan on drinking this holiday (It does fall on a Saturday, so there's no work to worry about the next day.) — do so responsibly. You want to have cute pics to post to go along with these captions. You can't do that if your green hat is lopsided all day.
