Pinch me.... {Wiws vol 17}

Happy St. Patty's weekend!

I wasn't feeling the green clothes today. But to save my body from some pinching, I wore this bracelet and pair of earrings {both gifts from my mom 2 Christmases ago}.

So why pinch those not decked out in green?
Thanks to trusty Google, here's what I found:
Wearing green on St. Patrick's Day is a tradition that started in the 17th century, when green ribbons and shamrocks were worn to celebrate Ireland's patron saint. The tradition was popularized by Irish immigrants in the United States, who believed that wearing green made you invisible to leprechauns, fairy creatures who would pinch anyone they could see. Pinching those who didn't wear green was meant to remind them that leprechauns could sneak up at any time. Still, only around half of Americans choose to deck themselves out in green for the holiday -- from bhg.com
