People often ask me why St. Patty's day is one of my favorite holidays.
Sure...I've got a little Irish heritage runnin' through my blood...but that's not why.
It's my love of green that fuels my craziness for this day!
As a kid, I think I liked the fact that I could trick my friends by wearing green underware and then getting pinched only to pinch them 3 times back when they pinched me for not wearing green.
Green to me has so many meaning behind it.
It is the color
of positive things (greener pastures/luck)
To me, no other color holds such depth.
For 'tis green, green, green, where the ruined towers are gray,
And it's green, green, green, all the happy night and day;
Green of leaf and green of sod, green of ivy on the wall,
And the blessed Irish shamrock with the fairest green of all.
