St. Patrick’s Day – What to Wear

It may seem early, but St Patrick’s Day is coming up! I don’t know if I’m superstitious, or it’s my Irish surname Boland, but I always like to wear a touch of green on St. Patrick’s Day. How about you? Of course, there’s no rule you even have to, even if you are Irish, but don’t be surprised to feel a little pinch if you don’t. Have you ever heard the saying Pinch me, I’m Irish?


It turns out there’s an old American tradition that began in the early 1700s of pinching anyone who forgot to wear green on St. Patty’s Day.  Irish folk believed wearing green made them invisible to leprechauns and fairy creatures who liked to go around pinching people. St. Patrick’s Day partiers soon started pinching those who didn’t wear green to remind them that leprechauns were coming to get them.

You may want to think about that when deciding what to wear on March 17th. (LOL!) It’s coming up soon. Here are a few green ideas for what to wear on St. Patrick’s Day.
