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.
