Wearing of the Green
Make sure you wear green today ... or you'll get pinched! You simply must wear some green clothing or accessories on St. Patrick's Day or you risk the "reward" of a pinch by someone versed in this tradition. Alternatively, wearing a shamrock is always surefire protection.
I remember crying one St. Patrick's Day morning long ago because I didn't have any green to wear to school. I was so scared of being pinched! My Mom went to her scrap bag and cut me a cunning little green shamrock from an old pair of her slacks. I pinned it on my shirt, went to school and the day was saved.
