I was wondering, did you wear green this past St. Patrick's Day?

I wore my Absinthe Green IZOD Advantage Polo. I really don't have a lot of green clothes, so I think this was the perfect choice.

No, I am not Irish and I do not own any article of clothing that is green.

Jazz, what percentage of the time would you say you wear a pink shirt?

I wore green. I had originally planned not to do so, since I'm not Irish, but my family talked me into it since we were going to a family St. Patrick's thing anyway. I don't think I wore green the year before, though.

Absolutely not. I'm not Irish and I'm not catholic.

Yes, I am Irish and it was also my wedding anniversary. I wore my Vans that have four-leaf clovers all over them.

I'm not Irish either, but I have seen a lot of non-Irish people wear green on St. Patrick's Day.

Usually I wear pink 3-5 days per week. Valentine's Day and Easter are the two holidays that I must wear pink.

BTW I wore red on Christmas.

I did and always do wear green on that day, just out of tradition and habit I guess, and not wanting to be pinched (by my wife). I asked one co-worker if he was wearing green (none visible) and he replied that he was not, and if anyone pinched him he would go to HR.

Is pinching people for not wearing green actually a thing that happens outside of elementary school? If someone at work touched me like that, yeah, I'd be unhappy about it.

I think I wore something green on Friday, but not on purpose.

I've worn green all my life on St. Patrick's Day, having County Derry ancestry.

Never encountered the pinching during my childhood or teenage years. Seems to be something new and not very pleasant.
