Holidays are different when you have kids. However, these changes don’t start when you have an infant in your arms. They start the moment you become pregnant. Your body and your ability to perform certain activities change, so what you normally do on said special occasions changes, too. And unlike the way a baby changes your celebrations (like dressing up as Santa and surprising your kids), pregnancy only makes it more difficult to enjoy the holidays. So, honestly, it's easy to imagine the reasons why being pregnant on St. Patrick’s Day is the worst.
While the origins of St. Patrick’s Day are rooted in Catholicism, these days our collective celebrating simply includes wearing obnoxious green clothing items and drinking (probably a little too much, and probably green beer). While the green isn’t necessarily a hindrance when you’re pregnant, you might be "seeing green" thanks to the fluctuations in hormones. And sure, you can replace your green beer or Irish whiskey with a green mint shake or a kiwi or lime-based green mocktail, but I have a feeling it just won't feel the same.
Now, every pregnancy and every woman is different, so maybe the the ways a pregnancy changes St. Patrick's Day doesn't bother every woman growing a human being inside her body. However, for the majority of us, it just kind of ruins the entire experience.
