Are you supposed to wear green on St Patrick’s Day? The pinching rule on Saint Patrick’s Day
As the tradition goes, wearing green on Saint Patrick’s Day is supposed to make you invisible to leprechauns. They will pinch you as soon as you come upon their radar if you don’t wear green!
Why did St Patrick’s Day change from blue to green? When George III created a new order of chivalry for the Kingdom of Ireland he needed to adopt a color for it. The Order of the Garter for the previous Kingdom of England already used a dark blue (Scotland’s Order of the Thistle used green) so a lighter blue was used for the Order of St Patrick.
