St. Patrick's Day - Don't forget to wear green today!
Today, March 17th, is the day celebrated as St. Patrick's Day. The United States, Ireland, and many countries across the world will be celebrating. Don't forget to wear green today!
Blue was the original color associated with Saint Patrick. But as early as the 17th century, green ribbons and shamrocks were worn in celebration of St. Patrick's Day. The phrase the "wearing of the green" meant to wear a shamrock on your clothing in celebration of St. Patrick's Day.
Why do we wear green on St. Patrick's Day? An American legend has it that wearing the color green makes one invisible to leprechauns. Leprechauns would sneak up and pinch anyone they could see. Many children (and even some adults) enjoy carrying on this tradition of pinching people not wearing green on St. Patrick's Day.
St. Patrick's Day is a celebration of Irish and Irish-American culture. There are many events in the Tampa area to celebrate this day. However you choose to celebrate, have fun, be safe, but don't forget to wear green!
