March 17th is the Wearing of the Green

Nothing celebrates St. Patrick’s Day, with all its festivities, as much as wearing the green. You’ll see more of the Irish green in that day than any other. There’s a reason for that and it’s this:  On St. Patrick’s Day, everybody is a little bit Irish, no matter what their ethnic background. After all,  Irish love to have fun, to frolic, and parade, and tell tall tales about leprechauns that make mischief. These are fun things for everyone, so what’s not to love about St. Patrick’s Day? But you must be wearin’ the green  or risk being pinched! To show you’re celebrating the day, I’ve shown a few things on this page you might covet and if you do, they’re available right here!

About the Pinch

There’s a custom going round, that on St. Patrick’s Day, if you’re not wearin’ the green, you’re subject to being pinched by someone who IS. Now I don’t know about you, but getting pinched isn’t exactly something I like, and I’d rather be wearing the green, than to receive that pinch. So how did the pinching tradition begin? It seems that if you’re not wearin’ Irish green, the leprechauns and naughty fairies can see you, and therefore wreak all sorts of mischief on you, including pinching. However if you celebrate properly by wearing Irish green, the naughty ones cannot see you (or so the story goes!) There’s also something about no pinches meaning there’s a good year ahead, and even though that might be farfetched, at least it would be a good beginning of the spring season!

What Do I Wear??

I’ve divided categories in these suggestions below; women’s clothing, men’s clothing, children’s clothing, and even hats, all in green. So what’s your choice? Be wise and order soon, because St. Patrick’s Day is the 17th of March and it’s approaching rapidly.

Here are my picks for women and you’re bound to find something cute!

How about some fancy footwear for St. Patrick’s Day?


Let’s not leave out the menfolk. They like to party too!

Don’t forget the kids. Boys and girls like to have a good time on St. Patrick’s Day too.

St. Patrick’s Day Hats are all the rage too. Think of all the folks you know who’d look fabulous in one.
