St. Patrick’s Day is a the day everyone can say they are Irish. It’s the day we eat corned beef and cabbage and drink green beer. So why not wear fun green ties, dresses, jackets, shoes, and accessories to celebrate the day. Wear green and be “pinch proof”. Tradition tells us that those who don’t wear green on St. Patrick’s Day get pinched.
On St. Patrick’s Day, green ribbons and shamrocks have traditionally been worn as early as the 17th century. The wearing and display of shamrocks and shamrock-inspired designs has become a feature of the day. The phrase “the wearing of the green”, means to wear a shamrock on one’s clothing.
Green is one of the colors in Ireland’s flag. Ireland is the “Emerald Isle,” so named for its lush green landscape. Green is also the color of spring and the shamrock. I think the best reason to wear green for St. Patrick’s Day is to celebrate the coming of Spring after the long, cold winter. Whatever your reason, just have fun with the color green on St. Patrick’s Day to get into the festive mood.
