All Irish

Now What?: Write what comes next.
Today is St. Patrick's Day!
How do you celebrate, if you do? Or if you don't, how would you respond if someone tries to pinch you for not wearing green?

We Have A Winner!!! 03/24/10
I don't do much to celebrate St. Patrick's Day except I always wearing green!

It has become fairly acceptable in our society to pinch a person for an infraction as benign as not wearing green on March 17th. However, it is very much not acceptable to break those peoples pinching fingers for touching me and causing me pain.

So I wear green.

Happy Don't Pinch Me (or else) Day
Winner: Melinda (@mstacer)
Reason: "Don't Pinch Me (or else) Day"? I love it - it's exactly my kind of holiday!

I'm pro-pagan so I don't celebrate St. Pat's Day. Anyone who tries to pinch me (or even ask why I'm not wearing green) gets a lecture on the history of St. Patrick. A lecture is worse than a punch, I reckon.

"Like all good fairy tales, our magic ends when you are deep asleep, dreaming of next years treats and tricks," is the note left behind by our friendly neighborhood leprechauns each year. My eldest reads the green glittery letter to his sister with the use of a magnifying glass. After all, leprechauns are tiny magical people, no taller than a Smucker's jar of raspberry jelly, so their writing should be really tiny. And they are very quick too! We never catch them in their mischievous acts, such as turning water into Leprechaun juice or making the letters taped to the window flip every time we go in or out of the house. Nor are they ever caught dumping the koolaid down the drain or cleaning up all of the crepe paper left behind after the children are in bed. The only reminder that they visited is the small pot of shiny pennies and single gold dollar coin left behind with a trace of gold dust.

I celebrate by wearing Green and drinking a GUINNESS.

Anything else is just beer.

Cheers!

Since I'm only 3/16 Irish, I usually just wear green socks.

Even though I am some random percentage Irish, I do not get into celebrating St.Patrick's Day. If someone tries to pinch me, I tell them my underwear is green and ask if they would like to see it to make sure and kiss it 'cause I'm Irish. :)
