Good ole’ St. Patricks Day has a way of bringing out the Irish in just about everyone – even if March 17th is the only day they have a lick of Irish blood running through their veins. And why wouldn’t it, being such a fun holiday? To help you and your littles celebrates this year we have 10 Frolicking Fun St Patricks Day Crafts and one fun fact for you. Everyone knows St. Patrick’s Day celebrates St Patrick the Patron Saint of Ireland but did you know where the idea of getting pinched if you forget to wear green originates from? We did some digging and the answer half surprised us. It’s an American tradition that is estimated to have started in the 1700s. People celebrating had the notion that wearing green made one invisible to leprechauns. If you weren’t wearing green the leprechauns would see you and you would receive a pinch. So of course, people began pinching those who didn’t wear green as a reminder.
