Why Wear Green???

Thought this was interesting and good to know :) hehe Random Knowledge right!

Wearing Green on St. Patrick's Day

Ireland's nickname is "The Emerald Isle" because the grass on the hills is so green. Everyone wears the color green on St. Patrick's Day to honor The Emerald Isle. If someone forgets to wear green on St. Patrick's Day, those who are wearing green are allowed to give the offender a pinch as a reminder. However, if you pinch someone who is wearing green, that person gets to pinch you back ten times!

I guess E told you that she pinched Ryan and I said he could pinch her 10 times...b/c the gator head on his shirt was green. But I guess b/c he is a daddy, we aren't Irish and that is not what we really celebrate on this day he let it slide! :)
