Wear Green Today, Y’all!

Happy St. Patricks Day to all the Irish & to everyone else who loves Ireland!

In America, it is tradition to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day, even if you’re not Irish.  And if you don’t, you might get pinched by someone who is wearing green!

When I lived in Ireland several years ago, I discovered that dressing in green was not necessarily the tradition in the land of St. Patrick himself.  Rather, the custom is to wear a bunch of clover pinned to your lapel. Many of the Irish even go all out & attach a virtual bush of shamrocks to their clothing.

Whatever tradition you follow today, old world or new, we wish you the luck of the Irish!
