Best Wishes on St. Patrick's Day -Postcard Friendship Friday #399

I have always loved St. Patrick's Day.  We would always wear green to school on that day because one of the traditions kids LOVED,  was the idea that people could pinch the person who forgot to wear green.

Some say this tradition started as a reminder to wear green to honor the Emerald Isle. 

However, it is said the tradition actually started in the United States. In the early 1700's St. Patrick's Day revelers believed that wearing green caused a person to become invisible to leprechauns and fairy creatures.  These fairy tale beings supposedly pinched anyone they could see--which were the folks NOT wearing green. 

Some mischievous individuals began pinching those who didn't wear green to remind them that if they weren't wearing the color green, they would be pinched by leprechauns.  Kind of silly really, but cute.  LOL
