This is not your typical write up about how eating your green veggies will support your overall health, but in fact we are talking about St. Patrick’s Day. Wearing green may not hurt but those awful pinches that one receives for not wearing green does! Ouch! The big question is why do people wear green on St. Patrick’s Day and why pinch someone who is not wearing green?
The importance of the color green was one directly related to Irish nationality and desires for independence. According to Timothy McMahon, vice president of the American Conference for Irish Studies told TIME, at least in the United States wearing green became a symbol of pride for Irish people to celebrate their homeland during St. Patrick’s Day in the 19th century. Wearing a color to symbolize pride and nationalism is noble, but why the pinching as a “penalty?” Apparently, pinching people on St. Patrick’s Day was reprimand for not showing Irish pride. "If you're not wearing green, you get pinched as a way to say shame on you," explained Luke Ahearn, owner of the Irish Cultural Museum in New Orleans.
Regardless if you are Irish or not, we have curated several ties that you can wear throughout the year and will have you in compliance with this festive day. Oh, and pinch proof!
