Why Green?

We all know green is associated with St. Patrick's Day.  We want to appear invisible to leprechauns that will pinch us if they can see us.  But did you also know orange is a popular color for the Irish holiday?


The day, originally a Roman Catholic holiday, celebrated Ireland's patron saint, and it wasn't until the 1700's when Irish  immigrants in the U.S began the first St Patrick's Day parade in New York City.


Green became the popular color to wear on St. Patrick's Day due to Ireland's nickname "The Emerald Isle" and the green stripe on the Irish flag.


But Protestants are known for wearing Orange, the other stripe on the flag.  the two colors, representing religious sects, are separated with the white on the flag, symbolizing peace between the two colors.  But we should really be drinking blue beer rather than green, because blue was the color originally associated with St. Patrick.


So if you see someone wearing orange, or blue, don't pinch them.  They too are celebrating the Irish holiday.
