And to you, also, Pirate!

Putting on a string of green shamrock lights today.

The only think that made this day even better is Mrs. Stumpy buying a package of Peeps for me!

My grass is green.

With some snow on it--but you can see the green.

I had forgot about it. I've spent most of my time wondering about the bracket for the NCAA tourney.

St. Patrick led a pretty interesting life. He was kidnapped from him home in Scotland at 16 or so (he came from a well to do family) and was a slave in Ireland for 6 years while it was still pagan. While there he began to have visions. He would eventually escape back to Scotland in part due to these visions, and then returned to Ireland of his own free will to facilitate the spread of Christianity there, a job which often put his life in jeopardy yet again. The shamrock thing likely came as an analogy he used to explain the holy trinity.

How that led to us pinching other for not wearing green is the real mystery here..

It's funny, in Japan, as in many places, the US is in the news a lot, and there is little people haven't at least heard about from the US. They love Christmas and Valentine's Day, Mother's and Father's Day etc. But when I tell them about St. Patrick's Day and the pinching thing I get blank stares. This always goes the worst when I am explaining it to a person not wearing green as they start to fear I am gearing up to pinch them..

My understanding your only supposed to pinch a person of Irish ancestry - punishment for non observance of St, Pat.

Now being part Irish and I have Green, brown and blue eyes - I have never been pinched, I always had something green on me laugh

Where I lived, anybody got pinched who wasn't wearing green. If you had a lot of enthusiastic people (elementary school days I guess) you could be in a lot of pain by the end of the day.
