Certain holidays call for gifts, others give you a day off to sleep-in, and some force you to cook and spend time with your family; sprinkled in-between are the few fun holidays that ask you to do nothing but celebrate. 

Today, for example, Irish pubs everywhere will be serving green beer specials in honor of St. Patrick's Day. In May, there will be tons of tequila-filled parties and endless margarita specials in honor of Mexico's Independence Day: Cinco de Mayo. Meanwhile, New Orleans is still recovering from Mardi Gras three weeks ago.
