WHY WE WEAR GREEN ON ST PATRICK’S DAY

Most of us love to celebrate wearing something green on St Patrick’s Day, but how much do you know about this celebration? Well here’s a fact that you may not be aware of.

Why do you pinch someone on St Patrick’s Day? Well the answer to this is that your only supposed to pinch someone who is not wearing green. The reason being is that people believed that leprechauns would pinch anyone that they could see, they also believed that leprechauns could not see anyone wearing green, hence they would not get pinched. Revellers started pinching anyone not wearing green on St Patrick’s Day. So this answers the question of why we wear green on this day.

Happy St Patrick’s Day and don’t forget to get your green costume on, you don’t want to be getting pinched all night do you?
