TIME TO WEAR SOME GREEN!!
Happy Saint Patrick's Day Everybody.....
Remember today to wear something GREEN or else you might get pinched!
That's right - it was something my Mom was told when she was a little girl so she's ALWAYS made sure to wear something green on St. Pat's Day.
Why is that a tradition? Here's what we found out courtesy of Mr. Google!
"Forgot to wear green on St. Patty’s Day? Don’t be surprised if you get pinched. No surprise, it’s an entirely American tradition that probably started in the early 1700s. St. Patrick’s revelers thought wearing green made one invisible to leprechauns, fairy creatures who would pinch anyone they could see (anyone not wearing green). People began pinching those who didn’t wear green as a reminder that leprechauns would sneak up and pinch green-abstainers."
I don't want to get pinched so I'm not taking any chances!
AND neither is my little brother Teddy!
Before you go, how about a piece of lucky Irish cake??? Or just one bowl of good old Irish stew?
Have a fabulous Saint Patrick's Day everybody.........
