...Hope no one reading this is Scottish. I've had people be terribly insulted before.
Make sure you wear green today (except you Scotch folk...you can wear orange). If you don't, keep an eye out for the wee folk, they're liable to give you a pinch!
What, you've heard of pinching for not wearing green, but didn't know why?
This is apparently a tradition that started in the 1700s. It was believed that if you wore green, the leprechauns wouldn't be able to see you and therefore wouldn't be able to play tricks on you. Thus, the pinching if you don't wear green. Hope everyone in America has a wonderful day (don't get too hungover) and for everyone else, I hope you have a wonderful day regardless.
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
May the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And, until we meet again,
May the Gods hold you in the palm of their hand.
(yes, I tweaked it a bit...hee hee!)
