When the springtime vibes are (finally) starting to hit, then it’s time for the greenest holiday of them all: St. Patrick’s Day. These funny St. Patrick’s Day memes will spread a little joy to your corner of the world, whether you’re in the middle of Dublin or Denver. Share them on social media, text them to a friend, or just enjoy them on your own.

While you might enjoy sharing a funny St. Patrick’s Day meme on the internet each March, how many people can say they actually know what this Irish holiday is about? Why do we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? The gist is this: A priest who converted many people in Ireland to Christianity, the real-life St. Patrick, lived until March 17, 461, and St. Patrick’s Day has been celebrated in his honor ever since. What began as a religious services holiday in Ireland has become a worldwide celebration of Irish culture (or at least the shamrock-and-Guinness version of it) via large parties, parades, singing, dancing, and most certainly not forgetting to wear your green — or you’ll soon fall victim to a pinch. So, whatever you’re doing to mark the holiday this March, these St. Patrick’s Day memes will give you a couple of laughs while you celebrate the Emerald Isle.


When You Want To Be Irish

Embarrassingly true. Everybody just wants to be a little Irish on this day.


Green Beer Is Healthy, Right?

St. Paddy’s is the one day of the year where beer can officially be considered healthy (or at least we can all pretend). It’s green, so it’s basically a juice cleanse, right?


Irish Coffee

On this day, whiskey in your morning cup of Joe is not only acceptable — it’s encouraged. Throw a little extra whip on top for good luck.


Michael Scott

If you’re a fan of The Office, you know there’s nothing Michael Scott doesn’t have an interesting take on. Especially when it comes to the holidays.


You Are The Captain Now

Say it with your chest and look them in the eyes. There’s no doubting your authentic Irishness now.


Green Scene

Cheers to everyone throwing back a green beer or two this year. If that isn’t for you, then it’s totally easy to enjoy some alcohol-free St. Patrick’s Day festivities as well, such as making your own green food. And by food, I mean Shamrock Shakes.


Womp Womp

Is it even a real holiday without some dad jokes? Nah.


St. Patrick Vs. Science

OK, so maybe the real-life St. Patrick didn’t run all the snakes out of Ireland. It’s still a fun bit of legend.


(Don’t) Kiss Me, I’m Irish

While this one’s obviously made with the past few years in mind, it’s also a great gesture if you’d actually rather not have everyone kiss you on St. Pat’s just because you’re Irish. It’s about boundaries, people.



Who knew there were so many clever ways to play with the word "leprechaun"? Post this one on St. Paddy's day with the caption: tag yourself. You might be surprised by some of the responses you see.


Seamus All

You're definitely not the only one who pauses when they see the Irish name Seamus in writing. But hey, now you finally know how to properly pronounce it, and all it took was this cheesy meme.


Take Down Christmas Tree

Are you the type of person who never seems to take down their Christmas tree in a timely manner? As a matter of fact, have you ever found yourself, on more than one occasion, leaving it up for the whole year? If so, this one's for you.


When St. Patrick Gets Set Up With Medusa

While he is known for other notable achievements, like bringing Christianity to Ireland, St. Patrick is certainly known for his power over snakes. A blind date with Medusa would likely not go well.


Not So Lucky Irish

It's true — despite the cliche "luck of the Irish" saying, the Irish haven't been all that lucky over the course of history.


Rare Clovers

If you can't find one of those rare four-leaf clovers, perhaps you'll be lucky enough to find an equally rare three-leaf clover with a different kind of leaf taped on.


Feeling Regretful

Hopefully you're not finding yourself full of regret on the morning of March 18. If you managed to wake up in perfect condition, it's very likely that your co-worker didn't, so let's try to be extra nice to everyone.


Green, I Am

Leprechauns aren’t the only magical green dudes in the galaxy. Just ask any fan of The Mandalorian.


St. Patrick’s Miracles

Thankfully, the world isn’t exactly in dire straights for toilet paper and hand sanitizer anymore, but you have to admit, these miracles are still pretty impressive (and hilarious).

This holiday is already a joyous occasion — it represents luck, after all. The day is full of beer drinking, Irish music, and outrageous green attire, so why not crank up the fun party vibes and share these hilarious St. Patrick’s Day memes with your celebratory squad?
